Report: Plane impounded in Thailand contained missile parts for Iran


Weapons seized in Thailand from an impounded plane traveling from North Korea were likely destined for Iran, a high-ranking Thai government security official was quoted by Reuters as saying regarding the findings of a team investigating the arms.

“Some experts believe the weapons may be going to Iran, which has bought arms from North Korea in the past,” said the official.

The official was quoted as saying the Thai investigating team considered Iran the likely destination because of the type of weaponry, including unassembled Taepodong-2 missile parts.
