Iran court upholds sentences for environmental activists

An Iranian Revolutionary court on Wednesday upheld the sentences of eight environmental advocates accused of spying for the US.

The conservationists—six men and two women, including American citizen Morad Tahbaz—received jail sentences of four to 10 years.

Human Rights Watch criticized the judgment, stating that there was no evidence to support the convictions and sentences.
