Iran's official IRNA news agency reports that a dual Iranian and Canadian citizen who killed himself in custody was sending information to the US and Israeli intelligence services.

The report Tuesday says Kavous Seyed-Emami, a university professor, was in custody for passing information on the country's missile bases to the CIA and Mossad and planning to create environmental crisis. The report didn't elaborate.

IRNA quotes Tehran prosecutor Abbas Jafari Dolatabdi as saying Seyed-Emami and a network of people installed cameras in strategic areas of the country pretending to observe environmental issues but, in fact "it was for monitoring the country's missile activities and they were sending images and information to foreigners."

Dolatabdi said Seyed-Emami hosted one of two US intelligence officers during their visit to Iran. He didn't elaborate.

On Monday, Iran said Seyed-Emami took his own life.
