SANA'A, Yemen, Oct. 11 (UPI) -- The appeals of two Yemeni nationals convicted last October of spying for Iran are to be heard Monday in Sana'a, Yemen, records show.
Hani Ahmed Din Mohammed and Abdul Karim Ali Abdul Karim were sentenced to death for providing classified economic, political, and war-related information to Iran in return for money from the Sana'a Iranian embassy, SABA reported Sunday.
A third defendant, Iskander Abdullah Yousuf, was found not guilty of similar charges by the state penal court, SABA said.
Previously this year, the same court sentenced to death a Yemeni national for contacting and offering services to Israel's intelligence agency, Mossad. In early 2008, the court sentenced to death a Saudi of Yemeni extraction and a Yemeni military officer for spying on behalf of Egypt, the news agency said.
