Iran's state media says Tehran has arrested seven people linked to the U.S.-funded Radio Farda and accused some of them of working for American spy agencies.

State radio and the official IRNA news agency reported Sunday the suspects played a key role in provoking protesters during a violent anti-government demonstration in Tehran in late December.

The report, based on an Intelligence Ministry statement, claimed the suspects were trained in "sabotage."

It did not identify the suspects or say when they were detained.

Radio Farda broadcasts in Farsi into Iran. It is based in Prague, Czech republic, and Washington, D.C.

Tehran has repeatedly accused the U.S. and other Western powers of fomenting unrest in Iran.
