TEHRAN, Iran (AP) -- Iran's official IRNA news agency says two people have been sentenced to 10 years in prison after being convicted of spying for the United States and Israel.

IRNA quotes judicial spokesman Gholam Hossein Mohseni Ejehi as saying Sunday that the two were sentenced by a Revolutionary Court, which handles national security cases. He did not provide the names of those sentenced.

The lawyer for Washington Post reporter Jason Rezaian, who was tried for espionage in a Revolutionary Court, said the case "has nothing to do with the case of my client." Leila Ahsan says the court has yet to issue its verdict on Rezaian.

Rezaian was arrested in July 2014, and reportedly faces up to 20 years in prison if convicted. His case has been widely criticized by rights groups.
