The US arrested two men for allegedly conspiring to export restricted defense goods to China, according to the US attorney's office. The men, one from Shenzhen, Guangdong province, and the other from California, were arrested in Los Angeles and charged in a federal court after a yearlong investigation by US authorities. An affidavit filed by investigators alleges that the two men conspired to purchase technology for use in fighter jets and satellite and missile systems for export to China, a violation of the US Arms Export Control Act. The two face up to five years in prison and US$250,000 in fines if convicted.
