US prosecutors on Tuesday accused 10 people of
having supported the Shiite militant group Hezbollah with weapons,fake
passports, counterfeit money, stolen laptops and game consoles
Harb told the undercover agent that the genuine
stolen money came from a string of robberies led by Hezbollah
supporters and later smuggled into Lebanon to raise funds for the group.
He also claimed that “Iran manufactured high-quality counterfeit US currency for the benefit of Hezbollah,” the indictment said.
and three others — two Americans and a Venezuelan — were charged with
having spearheaded the trafficking of over 1,500 cellphones, nearly 150
laptop computers, 400 Sony PlayStation 2 systems and three cars
