From the Telegraph:

US justice officials said on Tuesday they had indicted four Singaporeans and an Iranian for exporting radio equipment to Iran, for roadside bombs in Iraq.

At least 16 radio antennas were found in unexploded improvised explosive devices (IEDs) in Iraq, the US Justice Department said in a statement, noting that the Iranian suspect in the case is still at large.

The US military has repeatedly accused Shiite militias in Iran of conducting bomb attacks in neighbouring Iraq in an attempt to foment sectarian hatred.

The indictment said thousands of antennas were meant to be exported from the United States to Iran, and in addition to the four Singaporeans, four companies from the southeast Asian nation had been charged in the alleged plot.

“Yesterday, authorities in Singapore arrested Wong Yuh Lan (Wong), Lim Yong Nam (Nam), Lim Kow Seng (Seng), and Hia Soo Gan Benson (Hia), all citizens of Singapore, in connection with a US request for extradition,” the statement said.

“The United States is seeking their extradition to stand trial in the District of Columbia,” it said.

“The remaining individual defendant, Hossein Larijani, is a citizen and resident of Iran who remains at large.”
