Suspected Weapons Dealers Indicted


A year-long investigation involving a confidential informant posing as an arms broker has led to the indictment of 18 men accused of agreeing to sell antitank weapons, surface-to-air missiles, rocket-propelled grenade launchers, and machine guns to Al Qaeda-connected terrorists, the Christian Science Monitor reports.

The suspects, reportedly connected to the Russian mafia or Eastern European military, also claimed they could get weapons-grade uranium but did not provide any, officials announced Tuesday in a news conference in New York.
