Iranian billionaire businessman Babak Zanjani, 42, was sentenced to death for corruption.

The sentence came after his arrest in December 2013 for withholding billions in oil revenue channeled through his companies, reports say. He was also blacklisted by the US and EU for aiding Iran to evade oil sanctions.

He was convicted of fraud and economic crimes.
