Iran jails opposition leader Behzad Nabavi

An Iranian appeals court has upheld the sentence of a senior reformist figure convicted for his role in unrest after elections last year.

Former industry minister Behzad Nabavi was given a five-year sentence by the court, the semi-official Iranian Students News Agency reported.

Another unidentified man was given a death sentence for protests during December 2009.

Mr Nabavi is the second opposition leader jailed this week.

Eight other protesters were also sentenced to various prison terms on Tuesday, the news agency reported.
