ImageIran's judiciary spokesman has confirmed that two internationally renowned Iranian Aids physicians are in jail on charges of acting against national security.

Spokesman Ali Reza Jamshidi said the two will stand trial at Tehran's Revolutionary Court in the "next few days".

Arash and Kamyar Alaei have been held in Tehran's notorious Evin prison since late June 2008. Jamshidi's comment is the first official confirmation by Iran of the case after months of leaked reports.

Jamshidi said the two have also been charged with membership in opposition groups.

International human rights groups have called the charges "politically motivated" and demanded their immediate freedom.
