Iran Sentences Washington Post Journalist Jason Rezaian to Prison


Iran has apparently sentenced Washington Post reporter Jason Rezaian to an unspecified prison term. The 39-year-old was found guilty of espionage but Iranian authorities did not provide details of the verdict.

"If true, we call on the Iranian authorities to vacate this sentence and immediately free Jason so that he can be returned to his family," the U.S. State Department said in a statement.

Rezaian could face up to 20 years in prison. Among the charges, he was accused of propaganda against the establishment and collaborating with hostile governments.
