Italian police arrest three people for arms smuggling to Libya, Iran

Three Italians have been arrested on suspicion of running an arms trafficking ring.

They are suspected of smuggling military helicopters and surface-to-air missiles to Libya and Iran between 2011 and 2015, in violation of international embargoes.

The equipment was manufactured in the ex-Soviet bloc and shipped through third-countries including Ukraine and Tunisia, according to police.
