Germany and Turkey arrested seven suspected Iranian smugglers who were transporting materials for that country’s nuclear program from India and Germany, according to a UPI report about an article in the Turkish Haberturk newspaper.
The components were to be delivered to the Iranian nuclear facility in Arak, Iran.
According to the report, Turkey apprehended two of the suspects at Istanbul’s Ataturk Airport. One was an Iranian with Turkish citizenship and the other was an Iranian, who was suspected of being one of the leaders of the operation.
