Iran spy in Bahrain photographed homes
of U.S. military personnel

ABU DHABI — Bahrain has sentenced a convicted spy for Iran to 10 years.


Bahrain's High Court sentenced a Bahraini national to 10 years and a fine of more than $26,000 for spying for Teheran from 2002 to 2011. The court determined that the 47-year-old Bahraini, who was not named, worked with two Iranians to collect military and other data from the Gulf Cooperation Council kingdom.

The Bahraini, sentenced on July 5, was said to have photographed homes of U.S. military personnel in Bahrain for Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps. The court said he was paid more than $27,500 for the photographs and other information.

Prosecutors asserted that the Iranian operatives worked as diplomats in the Iranian embassy in Kuwait. They said the Bahraini cell was linked to another IRGC spy network in Kuwait, which was also directed to provide information on the U.S. military presence in the GCC sheikdom.

The two Iranian diplomats were not captured. Prosecutors said the Bahraini was a Shi'ite and relative of the Iranian fugitives.
