Suspect accused of sending explosive parts to Iran extradited to US

A Singapore man accused of illegally exporting technology to Iran that was later found in improvised explosive devices has been extradited to the United States to face charges.

The Justice Department on Monday announced that Lim Yong Nam, who's also known as Steven Lim, has arrived in Washington. He had been detained in Indonesia since October 2014.

Lim is charged with helping export thousands of radio frequency modules from the U.S. to Iran in 2007 and 2008, and with lying to the U.S. government about their end destination. Prosecutors say at least 16 of the modules were later found in unexploded IEDs in Iraq.

Lim, who was indicted in 2010, is scheduled to make his first court appearance Monday in federal court in Washington.

Court records don't list a lawyer.
