Germany Arrests Men Illegally Supplying Valves to Iran

Last year two men in Germany were arrested and are “suspected of working at the heart of a ring that allegedly supplied valves to Iran's controversial nuclear program. At the same time, investigators searched offices in a number of German cities -- in Oldenburg, Weimar and Halle -- and arrested two additional men,” Der Spiegel reports.

The 1,800 valves would have been enough to equip an entire heavy water reactor being built in Arak, Iran, a provincial capital 174 miles from Tehran, “and would have represented a major step toward completing the nuclear facility. The deal was worth €6 million ($7.7 million) to the Iranians.”
