A Saudi criminal court sentenced one citizen to death and seven others to prison on alleged charges of 'treason and spying for Iran', state television reported.

The Saudi national sentenced to death was accused of "betraying his country and offering intelligence to Iran", Al-Ekhbariya television said on Twitter on Tuesday.

Seven others were sentenced to a total jail term of 58 years for having "associated and cooperated with people working in the embassy of Iran", it claimed.

The broadcaster did not identify the people.

Saudi-owned publication Al-Arabiya claimed the death sentence was handed down to a person who was "proven to have leaked confidential information to Iranian intelligence".
