The jury of Iran's media court on Sunday found Reuters' Tehran bureau chief guilty of "publishing lies and negatively influencing public opinion," CNN reported Sunday evening.
The court case stems from a video put out by Reuters that showed women practicing martial arts and described them as "ninja assassins." After a complaint, Reuters changed the headline of the story, but the controversy led to the suspension of the Reuters bureau in Tehran, according to the New York Times.
A spokeswoman for Reuters, Barb Burg, said: "We understand that the jury has stated its view and we now await the court's ruling. We do not intend to comment further until a decision is issued."
The New York Times said a court sentence should be issued within the week.
