Report: Iran Dismantles Israel-Linked Spy Network

Tehran, Iran (AP) Iranian state radio says an alleged espionage network with links to Israel's Mossad spy agency has been dismantled.

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

Jafari says 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.

He says 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.
