Iran said Tuesday it has arrested a man on suspicion of selling Iran's nuclear secrets to an exiled Iranian opposition group, state radio reported.
"The man transferred classified information, including a bulletin on nuclear activities, to the hypocrites (the armed opposition group the People's Mujahedeen)," state radio said.
State radio didn't identify the man but said he had been working at the Iranian Parliament's Research Center, an advisory body to the parliament on foreign and strategic issues.
It did not say how the man obtained the information and it was not immediately clear whether an employee of the research center would have access to sensitive information on Iran's nuclear program.
