Iran Sentences US Journalist to Prison in Espionage Case

Iran said Sunday it has sentenced detained Washington Post journalist Jason Rezaian to an unspecified prison term following his conviction last month on espionage charges.

Gholam Hossein Mohseni Ejehi, a spokesman for Iran's judiciary, announced the sentence on Iranian state television's web site, but said it was "not finalized." He gave no indication on the length of the term.
