U.S. alleges conspiracy to aid Iranian uranium enrichment

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A federal grand jury has indicted two men on charges that they conspired to send materials from the United States to Iran for the purpose of enriching uranium, the U.S. Justice Department said on Friday.

One of the men, an Iranian citizen named Parviz Khaki, was arrested in May in the Philippines while the other, Zongcheng Yi of China, remains at large, the department said.
