A lawyer says a Washington Post reporter jailed in Iran faces four charges, including an espionage charge.
Lawyer Leilah Ahsan, who represents reporter Jason Rezaian, told the Post on Monday that the correspondent also faces charges of "conducting propaganda against the establishment," ''collaborating with hostile governments" and "collecting information about internal and foreign policy and providing them to individuals with malicious intent." Rezaian has been the Post's correspondent in Tehran since 2012 and has been held by Iranian authorities since July 22.
