DUBAI - An Iranian court will hold a second hearing next week for Washington Post reporter Jason Rezaian, an American-Iranian on trial on espionage charges, Iran's Students News Agency ISNA reported on Wednesday.

The trial of Rezaian, the newspaper's Iran bureau chief, began behind closed doors on May 26 at a Revolutionary Court in Tehran.

"Jason's second hearing will be on Monday at branch 15 of the Revolutionary court," his lawyer Leila Ahsan told ISNA.

Rezaian, a California native, was arrested last July in Tehran at his home. His wife, Yeganeh Salehi, and a woman described as a photojournalist also went on trial, the official IRNA news agency said.
