NEW YORK (AP) — An Iranian man has been indicted in New York on charges that he plotted to illegally export military and civilian aircraft parts from the United States to Iran.

Alireza Moazami Goudarzi was charged in an indictment returned Thursday in federal court in Manhattan. The 28-year-old man was arrested by Malaysian authorities in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, on Oct. 24. Authorities say he's in Malaysian custody pending extradition proceedings. It wasn't clear if he had a lawyer.

Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara said Goudarzi brazenly discussed a willingness to pay higher prices for military-grade aircraft parts to dodge an embargo affecting Iran. He says Goudarzi was thwarted when a supplier called law enforcement authorities.

Authorities say Goudarzi's shopping list in October 2010 included rotor blades for an attack helicopter and jet engines.
