BERLIN – German border police said Monday that they had arrested a 53-year-old man suspected of trying to illegally export material used in nuclear power plants to Iran.

The man, who was picked up as he returned from Poland, will appear before a judge in Postdam, eastern Germany on Tuesday, a spokesperson said.

He is one of eight people and three companies suspected of trying to sell Iran cranes, broken down into parts and moved through Poland and Russia between 2000 and 2002, for use in its nuclear plants.

A 44-year-old man was arrested in eastern Germany on November 4 on suspicion of involvement in the same activities. Police raided several homes and buildings in at least six cities the same day.
