WASHINGTON - A Singaporean man was sentenced on Thursday to 40 months in a US prison for his role in exporting to Iran radio frequency modules, some of which were later found in bombs in Iraq, the US Justice Department said in a statement.

Lim Yong Nam, also known as Steven Lim, 43, pleaded guilty in December to illegally exporting the modules through Singapore, and later to Iran, knowing that the export of US goods to Iran was a violation of US law, the statement said.
