German authorities arrested a German-Iranian man, Dr. Ali Reza B., on charges of providing Iran with components for its missile program. The equipment, worth nearly $315,000, included dual-use items such as vacuum pumps and valves. The parts were allegedly delivered to Iran via a company in an unidentified "neighboring Arab country" in 12 shipments from 2011 to 2013.
