WASHINGTON - A reporter for the Washington Post in Iran who has been detained for over four months was charged on Saturday, the newspaper reported, quoting a source familiar with the case.

It said the nature of the charges leveled at a daylong proceeding in a Tehran courtroom was not immediately clear.

Jason Rezaian, an Iranian-American who holds dual citizenship, had been the Washington Post's bureau chief in Tehran since 2012, the paper said on its website.

"We are dismayed and outraged by reports that Jason Rezaian, The Post's correspondent in Iran, has now been charged with unspecified crimes," Washington Post Executive Editor Martin Baron said in a statement.

It could now take another month for the charges to be delivered to the full court, which would then set a trial date.
