Israeli held in U.S. over nuclear parts sales to Pakistan
By The Associated Press
DENVER - An Israeli citizen was arrested at Denver International Airport on
January 2 on suspicions he illegally shipped high-tech equipment to Pakistan
that could detonate nuclear weapons.
Karni, who lives in South Africa, was accused of sending to Pakistan
hundreds of triggered spark gaps - high-speed electrical switches capable of
sending synchronized electronic pulses.
A U.S. Magistrate's Court on Tuesday ruled that 50-year-old Asher Karni can
be released on $75,000 bail, but will remain in federal custody until at
least Thursday while the government appeals the bond decision, said Jeff
Dorschner, spokesman for the U.S. Attorney's Office in Denver.
The spark gaps are so-called dual use technology. In the medical field, they
are used to destroy kidney stones, and Karni said the parts were intended for
a hospital in South Africa.
But the government argues the equipment, ordered from a New Jersey export
company, was shipped to South Africa and then sent on to Pakistan using
Spark gaps are among a list of items that require a special export license if
being shipped to certain countries, such as Pakistan, because they can be
used to make nuclear weapons.
Karni was arrested in Colorado after arriving for a ski vacation.
