DUBAI: A verdict in Iran's trial of Washington Post correspondent Jason Rezaian could be issued within a week, his lawyer was quoted by Iranian media as saying on Monday after the fourth and last hearing behind closed doors.

Rezaian, who holds dual U.S. and Iranian citizenship, was arrested over a year ago and charged with espionage. The Post has dismissed the charges as "absurd" and urged the U.N. Human Rights Council to help secure his release.
