The execution of British-Iranian man Alireza Akbari, who had been sentenced to death, has sparked international condemnation.
Mr Akbari, the ex-deputy Iranian defence minister, was arrested in 2019 and convicted of spying for the UK, which he denied.
After Iran’s state media reported the execution, UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak called it a "callous and cowardly act, carried out by a barbaric regime".
Meanwhile, France has summoned Iran’s top diplomat in Paris, warning that Tehran’s repeated violations of international law could not go unanswered.
Iran posted a video of Mr Akbari earlier this week, showing what appeared to be forced confessions, while BBC Persian broadcast an audio message from him on Wednesday in which he said he had been tortured and forced to confess on camera to crimes he did not commit.
