Iran accuses CIA of recruitin 17 spiesIran captured 17 spies working for the US intelligence agency, the CIA, and some have been sentenced to death, an Iranian official said on Monday, a claim Washington denied.

Security agencies "successfully dismantled a [CIA] spy network," the head of counterintelligence at the Iranian Ministry of Intelligence, whose identity was not revealed, told reporters in Tehran.

"Those who deliberately betrayed the country were handed to the judiciary," he said. "Some were sentenced to death and some to long-term imprisonment."

US President Donald Trump denied the claim later on Monday, calling it "totally false".
