Canadian jailed in Iran 'nuclear export' case
A Canadian court has sentenced a Toronto resident to over four years in prison for violating a United Nations resolution by attempting to export nuclear-related goods to Iran.

The items, called pressure transducers, are subject to a UN embargo on nuclear-related exports.

Mahmoud Yadegari was arrested after a two-month investigation in 2009.

Yadegari is the first person convicted of violating UN anti-nuclear proliferation resolutions against Iran.

Yadegari attempted to export controlled material to the country via Dubai in March 2009, Canada's public prosecution service said in a statement.
