Swedes Face Death Sentences in Iran

Published tisdag 25 april 2006 kl 11.40

Two Swedes have been tried in Iran for photographing military installations.   

The Iranian news agency ISNA says a verdict is expected in due course. If convicted of espionage, they could face the death penalty.

The two men are construction workers from western Sweden. Their trial was reportedly held Saturday in a Revolutionary Court.

ISNA says they have confessed to taking pictures in a forbidden area. The Swedish charges d’affaires in Tehran, who has spoken to the two, says they didn’t realize the severity of the photo ban.
