TEHRAN, Iran (AP) -- Iran's state TV has broadcast video of a man it claimed was a CIA spy who sought to infiltrate Iran's secret services.
The TV identified the man as Amir Mirzaei Hekmati, ansaid he is an American-Iranian who received special training and served at U.S. military bases in Iraq and Afghanistan before heading to Iran for his mission. It showed him allegedly confessing and describing his mission.
Iran's Intelligence Ministry says its agents identified Hekmati at Bagram Air Field in Afghanistan. Bagram is a main base for American and other international forces.
Iran periodically announces the capture or execution of alleged U.S. or Israeli spies, and often no further information is released.
