Arrested Russian Arms Dealer Had Long History in Africa

Post by shammy on Mon Mar 10, 2008 3:53 pm

One of the world's most notorious arms dealers, Russian national Viktor Bout, arrested in Thailand Thursday, had a long history of arms dealing in West and Central Africa. U.S. agents say he also operated in Latin America and Afghanistan.

U.S authorities say they want Russian national Viktor Bout extradited to the United States. His arrest in Bangkok came after an eight-month sting operation by U.S. agents of an alleged attempt to supply Colombian rebels with weapons and explosives.

Michael J. Garcia, the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York, said it was, in his words, the end of the reign of one of the world's most wanted arms traffickers.

"He was apprehended in the final stages of managing the sale of millions of dollars of high-powered weapons to people he believed to represent a known terrorist organization, the FARC," he explained.

Authorities in Thailand said their prosecutors have not decided yet if Bout will first face trial in Thailand.
