Palma de Mallorca, Spain Iran sanctions breach: Spanish police arrested four people this week for allegedly trying to export industrial equipment to Iran that could be used to make missile parts or enrich uranium. The three Spaniards and one Iranian were charged with membership in a criminal gang, trafficking dual-use goods, and money laundering. The metal-molding machines they had imported illegally from the U.K. can be used for civilian purposes like making fire extinguishers, but can also make missile casings and gas centrifuges used for uranium enrichment. In February, Iran announced it had developed a new, faster centrifuge, in defiance of U.N. sanctions.
