Israel sentences Belgian-Iranian to seven years' jail for spying

JERUSALEM (Reuters) - A Belgian-Iranian man was sentenced to seven years in jail in Israel on Tuesday after being convicted of spying for Iran that included photographing the U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv from his nearby hotel balcony.

A court in the central Israeli city of Lod said the information Ali Mansouri, 56, provided Tehran was of "limited value". He was arrested in Tel Aviv in 2013 and signed a plea bargain agreement last November.
