DUBAI, - An Iranian jury voted on Sunday to convict the Reuters news organization over a video script that contained an error, Iran's Press TV reported. The final decision will be made by a judge, who is expected to issue his verdict next month.

In March, the Iranian government suspended the press accreditation of Reuters staff in Tehran after the publication of a video script on women's martial arts training that incorrectly referred to the athletes as "assassins". Reuters journalists have not been able to report inside Iran since then.

"A jury member at a Tehran penal court told Press TV on Sunday that the news agency was found guilty of propagating against the Islamic Republic and disseminating false information to disturb public opinion," Press TV said in an article on its website.
