Iran has detained two Chinese nationals on charges of spying on its military and nuclear facilities, state radio reported Wednesday. Though such accusations against Westerners are common in Iran, the announcement is the first such charge against China, with which Iran enjoys good relations. "The Chinese nationals were detained while taking photo and recording video tape of a military complex in Arak city," the radio quoted Ali Reza Jamshidi, spokesman of Iran's judiciary, as saying. "They entered Iran through Kish Island as tourists." Jamshidi said the case was under initial investigations by the country's judicial authorities.
