Thirteen Iranian Jews arrested last year amid allegations they spied for Israel and the United States will go on trial April 13, according to media reports in Iran. According to Malcolm Hoenlein, executive vice chairman of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, the families of the 13 have been told to get a lawyer by the end of the week. Hoenlein has heard reports from inside Iran that some of the 13 are being targeted for conviction and that the remainder will be set free.
