Iran says verdict issued in WaPo reporter trial

A verdict has been issued in the trial in Iran of Washington Post reporter Jason Rezaian, the country’s judiciary said on Sunday, without detailing the judgment but hinting at a conviction.

Mr. Rezaian, the U.S. newspaper’s Tehran correspondent, was arrested in July 2014 and accused of spying and other crimes against national security. He was tried in four hearings behind closed doors, the last of which was held in August.
