Czech arms dealer arrested in Brussels
Police in Brussels have arrested a Czech arms dealer Dalibor Kopp, wanted since 2004 on an international warrant for allegedly trying to illegally import munitions into Iraq. In the past Mr Kopp faced charges in Liberia and was accused of having ties to Arab terrorist organisations. His arrest Thursday took place at around 6:30 am at Brussel's international airport. The Czech Republic will reportedly now seek his extradition. If found guilty of illegal arms trafficking, Mr Kopp could face up to ten years in prison.
