Iran has arrested a British citizen on suspicion of having links to UK spy agencies, the country's state-run IRNA news agency has announced.
It said the unnamed suspect, who also had Iranian nationality, was "active in the economic field" and had been held last week.
A Foreign Office spokesman said: "We are seeking information following the reported detention of a dual Iranian-British national in Iran."
The latest arrest follows the detention of at least six other dual nationals for alleged security related offences since the signing last year of Iran's nuclear agreement with leading world powers.
The detainees include British-Iranian charity worker Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, who was arrested at Tehran's airport in April as she tried to return to the UK after a holiday with her two-year-old daughter, Gabriella.
Iran does not recognise dual nationalities, meaning those detained cannot receive consular assistance.
The PM made a personal intervention on behalf of British-Iranian national Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, who has been held for several months.Read the full story ›
Iran has executed a nuclear scientist who gave the US intelligence about the country's contested nuclear program.
Gholamhosein Mohseni Ejehi, a spokesman for the Iranian judiciary, confirmed the execution of Shahram Amiri.
He told the official Iranian news agency IRNA that Mr Amiri "provided the enemy with vital information of the country".
This person [Shahram Amiri], who had access to the country's secret and classified information, was linked to our hostile and number one enemy, America - the Great Satan.
Foreign media reports quoted Mr Amiri's mother saying that he had been hanged this week and a memorial service for him was held in Kermanshah, 310 miles south-west of Tehran.
In 2010 US officials said they paid Mr Amiri £3.82 million to defect and provide "significant" information about Iran's atomic program, but the scientist later fled the country without the money.
Mr Amiri was then welcomed home a hero, with Iranian officials touting his claim that he had been abducted by US agents while on a pilgrimage to holy sites in Saudi Arabia.
