Iranian state media published a video on Thursday in which Alireza Akbari, a British-Iranian citizen sentenced to death for espionage, said he played a role in the 2020 assassination of the country’s top nuclear scientist.

In a separate audio recording broadcast by BBC Farsi on Wednesday, Akbari said he was tortured in custody for months to make him confess to crimes he had not committed.

Iran has sentenced a former deputy defense minister, who holds dual Iranian-British citizenship, to death on charges of spying for Britain, Iranian state media reported on Wednesday.

Britain called the death sentence politically motivated and demanded his immediate release. British officials did not immediately comment on the video clip broadcast by Iran’s state media.
