Tehran’s prosecutor office following a statement announced, the two men, Mohammad Heydari and Koroush Ahmadi were found guilty of working for Isreal and United States.
The statement further added, Mohammad Heydari was convicted of “receiving payment to provide intelligence on various security issues and national secrets in repeated meetings with the Mossad,” Israel’s intelligence agency.
Koroush Ahmadi was found guilty of “providing intelligence on various issues to the CIA,” the statement added, without elaborating further details.
Iran occasionally says it has dismantled Western spying networks in the country and announces arrests of individuals on espionage charges.
The execution of the two men comes amid continuing tension over Iran’s nuclear programme.
Tehran accuses Israel and the U.S. of spying on its vital interests, particularly its nuclear program, which the West suspects is aimed at producing an atomic weapon.
