Madrid/Palma.— Spain said yesterday  it had dismantled a group it accused of plotting to send industrial equipment to Iran that could be used for weapon manufacture in violation of international sanctions. Four people have been arrested including an Iranian who was living in Majorca.
The Spanish interior ministry and Civil Guard said in a joint statement they had arrested four people from the group, which is also accused of sharing technological information through a complex business network, including engineering projects, which may be used to build missiles.
The bust came as chief negotiators prepared for another round of talks in Vienna on Tehran’s nuclear programme, part of efforts to reach an agreement by late July on resolving a decade-old dispute that has stirred fears of a Middle East war.
