Report: Iran Shuts Down Israel-Linked Spy Network

An alleged espionage network with links to Israel's Mossad spy agency has been dismantled, Iranian state radio reported.

Monday's radio report featured the chief of Iran's Revolutionary Guards, Gen. Mohammad Ali Jafari. He said the Guards' intelligence unit recently discovered the network.

The alleged network was trying to collect information on Iran's nuclear program and the Guards' military operations as well as details on military and security officials, Jafari said.

Jafari said equipment was confiscated. He didn't specify who belonged to the network or whether arrests were made.

Earlier this month, Iran executed an Iranian electronics salesman convicted of relaying information on the nuclear program to Mossad.
