Iran has executed a former Ministry of Defence official on charges of spying for the US government.  

According to the IRIB news agency, Jalal Hajizavar, an ex-contract employee for the aerospace arm of the defence department, was convicted of secretly working for the CIA.

A military court found him guilty after an investigation discovered documents and spying equipment at his home. He was executed at the Rajai Shahr prison in Karaj, west of Tehran, without providing further details.  

His death comes amid escalating tensions between Washington and Tehran.
