Tehran (ISNA) – The Iranian judiciary on Sunday upheld a 10-year jail term for an American citizen, two US-Iranian dual nationals and a Lebanese citizen for "collaborating" with foreign governments including the US government.

Xiyue Wang, a Chinese-born American, was sentenced to 10 years in jail for "collaborating with foreign governments", Tehran prosecutor Abbas Jafari Dolatabadi said.
