US man sentenced in plot to sell guns to Ahmadinejad foes

A man was sentenced Monday to three years and five months in federal prison for his role in a scheme to buy submachine guns and sell them to Iranian government officials opposed to that country's current president. Seyed Mostafa Maghloubi's plan, if executed, would have destabilized an "area of the world that has suffered enough from continuing upheaval," US. District Judge George King said as he handed down the sentence. "These were very dangerous actions," King said.
