Iranian businessman and alleged Iranian

Iranian businessman and alleged Iranian Revolutionary Guard member Azim Aghajani (C) and Nigerian suspect Ali Abbas Jega (2nd L) are led on March 7, 2011 onto a bus taking them to prison after a hearing at the Federal High Court in Lagos. Nigerian prosecutors on March 7 amended the charges against Aghajani and Jega on trial over a shipment of rockets, explosives and grenades seized in the West African nation. The new charges are similar to the old accusations, but provide more specifics on the types of weapons involved in the October 2010 seizure, naming bombs, grenades and rockets. They accuse the two suspects of illegally importing them and say the weapons were under their control. They are also accused of having falsely declared the 13 containers seized at a Lagos port as building materials. Both men pleaded not guilty to the new charges.
