Washington (PTI): Pakistan’s disgraced atomic scientist A Q Khan, who is under house arrest in his country for the last three years, has been slapped with US sanctions alongwith a dozen individuals and three private companies for clandestinely selling equipment and technology to North Korea, Iran and Libya to develop nuclear weapons.
“Khan, who is currently under house arrest, led an extensive international network for the proliferation of nuclear equipment and know-how that provided one stop shopping for countries seeking to develop nuclear weapons,” the State Department said here.
The sanctions comes after several years of governmental review of the activities of the Khan network.
