Iran is expected to soon announce its decision on the fate of a U.S. journalist it has kept detained for more than a year on espionage charges. Washington Post reporter Jason Rezaian had his fourth and final hearing at Iran's Revolutionary Court Monday in Tehran. If convicted, he faces 10 to 20 years in prison. Rezaian's lawyer Leila Ashan submitted a 20-page document, and she as well as Rezaian spoke at the closed-door hearing. VOA's Zlatica Hoke reports.
