SANAA, Yemen -- Authorities in Yemen say two men convicted of spying for Iran were sentenced to death Tuesday in a court in Sanaa.

Abdulkareem Ali Laliji, 33, and Hani Ahmed Din Mohammed, 31, were sentenced by Judge Mohsin Alwan, KUNA, the Kuwaiti news agency reported.

A third man, Iskandar Abdullah Abdah, 57, was acquitted of spying charges.

The three were arrested last year in Aden on charges they provided Iran with sensitive political, economic and security information, KUNA reported.
