DUBAI (Reuters) - Iran has arrested U.S.-Lebanese man, state broadcaster IRIB said on Tuesday, citing informed sources who alleged he had "deep links with the U.S. intelligence and military establishment".

It named the man as Nizar Zakka, an IT expert who Lebanese media reported last week had disappeared on Sept. 18 after attending a conference in Tehran.
