SANAA, Yemen, Feb. 23 (UPI) -- Yemeni authorities are trying a man they say spied for Iran for 12 years.
Prosecutors presented confessions by Muhammad al-Hatmi in the Specialized Penal Court in Sanaa Tuesday, the official news agency Saba reported.
They said he admitted being a paid Iranian agent from 1998 to 2010 and passing money to rebels so they could expand their activities into Saudi Arabia.
The court ruled al-Hatmi may bring a lawyer to the next session. His wife and son have been charged with aiding him by conveying money and communications.
