"An American man accused by Iran of working for the CIA could face the death penalty, the semiofficial Fars news agency reported Tuesday. In a closed court hearing, the prosecution applied for capital punishment, the report said, because the suspect, identified as Amir Mirzaei Hekmati, 'admitted that he received training in the United States and planned to imply that Iran was involved in terrorist activities in foreign countries' after returning to the U.S." (12/27/11)
