Saudi Arabia Says Spies Worked for Iran

After making several contradictory statements over Iran’s link to the spy cell, it seems now that the Saudi Ministry of Interior can finally confirm that the alleged spies have a link to Iran. The official Saudi Press Agency published a brief statement today quoting MOI’s spokesman as saying that the initial investigations on the 18 people accused of espionage revealed that they have a connection to Iranian intelligence agencies. “Those members [of the spy cell] have received money in return for information and documents about vital installations,” the statement said, adding that investigations are still ongoing.
