Iran's state media on Sunday said Teheran has
arrested seven people linked to the US-funded Radio Farda and accused
some of them of working for American spy agencies.
The report, based on an Intelligence Ministry statement, claimed the suspects were trained in "sabotage." It did not identify the suspects or say when they were detained.
The suspects played a
key role in provoking protesters during a violent anti-government
demonstration in Teheran in late December 2009, state radio
and the official IRNA news agency reported Sunday.
Radio Farda broadcasts in Farsi into Iran. It is based in Prague, Czech republic, and Washington, DC.
