TEHRAN - Iranian state television on Sunday aired what it described as the confession of an Iranian man detained for spying for the CIA.

State television broadcast a taped interview with Amir Mirza Hekmati, in which he said he had received training by the US intelligence services. The channel said he had been sent to Iran to provide misinformation to Iranian intelligence.

Iran's Intelligence Ministry said on Saturday it had captured a CIA spy of Iranian origin who had received training in the US Army's intelligence units and spent time at US military bases in Iraq and Afghanistan.
