Text size Aa Aa

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.
