Iran Scientist test new equipment

The US have charged 6 people of violating at trade embargo put in place in 1995, by providing Iran with technology and parts which enabled them to successfully lunch a satellite with an on board camera.

Assistant Secretary for US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) John Morton said that the charges would send a signal to others who may be considering breaching US security.

The equipment provided included a Kodak Instamatic camera (complete with rechargeable batteries), a Chinese Lantern, a Radio Shack solar panel kit, a roll of duct tape, a pack of elastic bands and a roll of silver foil.

The six individuals, one American and five Iranians are accused of setting up a front company to handle the transactions. The company 'Dago Supplies' has subsequently been shut down by US authorities.
