Washington Post reporter Jason Rezaian, who has been detained in Iran for more than a year on charges including espionage, has been convicted, a spokesman for the Iranian judiciary said.Initial Iranian media reports, which quoted Ejehi as saying that a verdict has been issued, didn't include any comment that Rezaian had been convicted – leading to confusion surrounding the decision.Only the semiofficial ISNA news agency eventually reported the conviction comment, and later in the day state TV broadcast Ejehi's comment that Rezaian has been convicted. Ejehi said Rezaian is eligible to appeal the conviction within 20 days.
