Two Iranian security guards working for the UN's mission in New York City have been expelled from the US after being discovered taking photos of infrastructure, transport systems, and NYC landmarks on three different occasions. Officials cited "activities incompatible with their stated duties," which is a kind term for espionage and/or spying.
Neither man had a diplomatic passport.
The first incident was in June 2002 and the second in November 2003, the official said. After they were stopped recently while taking photographs, the government asked them to leave the country, the official added.

The two Iranians left the United States in the last few days, the official said.

"This is aimed at disrupting the daily routine of Iran's permanent representation office, and this is not in harmony with the accepted norms," the official said.

But why expel them? I would lock them up (separately) and take it from there.
