Feds discuss attempted arms exports to Iran
Federal authorities in Delaware are preparing to release more information in the case of a California man accused of trying to export military equipment to Iran, Tabnak reported.
Authorities scheduled a news conference Thursday afternoon to discuss the case of 35-year-old Marc Knapp of Simi Valley, Calif, AP reported.
Prosecutors alleged that Knapp, who was arrested in July, illegally exported military equipment to Hungary and tried to make other exports, including an F-5B Tiger II fighter jet, to Iran and Russia.
According to court documents, Knapp met several times with an undercover agent, saying he had defense items for sale, including a fighter jet that would be transported from California to Delaware, then to Iran via Hungary.
