Iran arrests nuclear negotiator as “spy”

Iran has arrested as a "spy" involved in the nuclear negotiations with world powers, but released him on bail pending legal action. The judiciary's spokesman told reporters in Tehran Sunday, “The charge against him has not been proven yet.” Neither his identity nor whom he was allegedly spying for was revealed. DEBKAfile’s intelligence sources link the new spy case to the power struggle in Iran over advocates of the nuclear deal in support of President Hassan Rouhani and its hard-line opponents.
