Iran says arrests another CIA spy

TEHRAN - Iranian authorities said on Saturday they had arrested an Iranian caught spying for the United States, the Islamic Republic's latest claim of success in a spying war with Washington.
State TV quoted the Intelligence Ministry as saying the arrested person had received training at US bases in neighboring Afghanistan and Iraq and was meant to feed false information to Iranian intelligence.
"This CIA agent of Iranian nationality began his mission after receiving training in weapons use," the ministry said in a statement quoted on television.
"But he was identified by Iranian intelligence agents and his espionage missions were revealed."
