BERLIN (AP) — German federal prosecutors say they have charged two men with violating an arms embargo by working to export equipment that Iran wanted for its missile program.

The federal prosecutor’s office said Thursday that 65-year-old German Heinz Ulrich K. was charged with breaking export laws and 52-year-old Iranian Mohsen A., 52, with incitement to break them.

It said the two men are suspected of having exported a vacuum sintering furnace worth euro850,000 ($1.1 million) to Iran in July 2007 although that type of equipment had been covered since April 2007 by an arms embargo against Iran.

Prosecutors already had charged Mohsen A. together with a third man, Dr. Behzad S., over the same deal earlier this year but now say the charges have been expanded.
