Some of the 13 Jews held in Iran on charges of spying for Israel and the United States have confessed, a top Iranian judiciary official was quoted as saying Monday. “The evidence against them was mostly based on these confessions,” the official, who provided no further details about the confessions, told the daily newspaper Iran News. He added that a trial of the 13 will not be held in the near future because several witnesses are abroad. Iran has come under international pressure to release the detainees, who were arrested in March.
