Two individuals, suspect of attempting to sell weapons worth several million dollars to a terrorist organization were extradited from Romania to the US, daily International Herald Tribune informs in its online edition.
Tareq Mousa al Ghazi and Luis Felipe Moreno Godoy were transferred to New York, this being the first time Romania expels terrorism suspects to the United States, US prosecutor Michael Garcia declared.

" A federal indictment accuses the men of seeking to sell weapons — including surface-to-air missile systems, rocket-propelled grenade launchers, thousands of machine guns and millions of rounds of ammunition — to the Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia, also known as FARC.

The U.S. government accused the men of conspiring through a series of recorded telephone calls, e-mails and in-person meetings with arms dealer Monzer Kassar between February 2006 and May of this year. The United States is seeking to extradite Kassar from Spain on the same charges.

The indictment describes Kassar as an international arms dealer who since the early 1970s has provided weapons and military equipment to factions in Nicaragua, Brazil, Cyprus, Bosnia, Croatia, Somalia, Iran and Iraq, among others", Internaitonal Herald Tribune reads.
