Hundreds of protesters descended upon Charlottesville, Virginia, on August 12, 2017 for a “Unite the Right” rally.

A Kuwaiti court sentenced two men accused of spying for Iran and Hezbollah to death on Tuesday.

An Iranian national and a Kuwaiti citizen were found guilty of intelligence links with the Iranian regime and its proxy Lebanese group Hezbollah. 

The Iranian national was convicted in absentia, but the other was in court.

According to the case documents, 25 Kuwaiti and Iranian suspects were put on trial for intelligence links with the regime in Iran and Hezbollah, and for possessing weapons and explosives. They were arrested in August.

The case also included the possession of weapons. 

Other suspects were given sentences ranging from five to 25 years, and three were found innocent.

The court said the Kuwaiti man masterminded the plot targeting Kuwait, used weapons and recruited 14 others.

The court also sentenced one defendant to life in jail, 15 others to 15 years and one to five years, Kuwaiti news site Al Aan reported.

The verdicts come amid deep tensions between Tehran and Arab countries after Iranian regime’s agents on January 2 torched Saudi Arabian diplomatic missions in Iran.
