DUBAI - A third hearing in the trial of jailed Washington Post correspondent Jason Rezaian on espionage charges took place behind closed doors in Tehran on Monday, Iran's official IRNA news agency reported.

The first and second hearings of Iranian-US citizen Rezaian were held behind closed doors on May 26 and June 8 respectively at the Revolutionary Court in Tehran. Rezaian has been in Tehran's Evin prison since his arrest in July 2014.

"The trial will continue and when the verdict is issued we will announce it to people," judiciary spokesman Gholamhossein Mohseni Ejei said, according to the semi-official ILNA agency.
