Iran Suspends Death Sentences of Antigovernment Protesters, Executes Alleged CIA Spy

Iran bowed to domestic stress by suspending the death sentences of a few alleged antigovernment protesters, but executed a person convicted of spying for the U.S. and Israel in a indicator it would show no leniency toward individuals accused of collaborating with its overseas foes.

Iran’s judiciary stated Monday it had agreed to retry a few protesters who had been arrested during demonstrations in November about the country’s troubled financial state and sentenced to death.
