US prosecutor: three indicted in UN oil-for-food scandal

Federal prosecutors say a Texas businessman, a Bulgarian and a British citizen have all been indicted in an alleged scheme tied to the UN oil-for-food program. Officials say the three schemed to pay millions of dollars in secret kickbacks to Saddam Hussein's government in Iraq. A federal prosecutor in New York has scheduled an announcement this morning. US Attorney David Kelley says the kickbacks involved money otherwise intended for humanitarian relief. A statement from Kelley says a criminal complaint against a South Korean citizen will also be unsealed. The South Korean is charged with conspiracy to act in the US as an unregistered government agent for the Iraqi government.
