Indian among two charged with trying to aid Hezbollah

world Updated: Oct 28, 2009 07:31 IST

Two men, including an Indian, were on Tuesday charged in New York with attempting to provide weapons to the Lebanese Hezbollah organisation, designated by Washington as a terrorist group.

<b1>Patrick Nayyar, 45, an Indian citizen living illegally in the United States, and Conrad Mulholland, 43, were charged by federal prosecutors with agreeing to supply an FBI undercover agent with guns, ammunition, vehicles, bulletproof vests and night vision goggles.

Mulholland remains at large, the prosecutor's office said.

They had already supplied a pistol, a pick-up truck and a box of ammunition to the FBI agent, whom they thought to be a Hezbollah member, the prosecutors say.
