May 28 (Bloomberg) -- Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps has arrested a spy working for the intelligence service of an Arab country, the state-run Fars news agency reported, citing a statement by the Guards.

The person was identified and arrested after he entered the landing area of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s helicopter during a recent trip by the president to the eastern city of Sabzevar in Iran, the statement released yesterday said, according to Fars.

The individual, who wasn’t identified, admitted to transferring “sensitive information” to contacts in an Arab nation, the report said without naming the country. The Guards also found ammunition, weapons and telecommunication tools during the operation, Fars said.

Iran has arrested more than 40 spies linked to the U.S. and Israel in the past year, according to Fars.
