Baquer Namazi

American father and son sentenced to 10 years in Iranian prison

Iran officials say five people were convicted and sentenced for "cooperating with Iran's enemies," a government euphemism that usually implies cooperating with the United States.

Siamak Namazi was arrested nearly a year ago and became the first US citizen reported to have been detained in the country since the announcement of the Iranian nuclear program deal.

The agreement was hailed by US President Barack Obama as a way to impede Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon.
