NEW YORK  : Oded Orbach, one of two US citizens among a group of men accused in 2011 of trying to sell weapons to people they thought were Taliban militants, was sentenced to 25 years in prison on Wednesday in Manhattan federal court. Orbach, 55, and former US Army translator Alwar Pouryan, the other US citizen netted in a sting, were convicted in April of conspiring to provide material support to terrorists and conspiring to acquire anti-aircraft missiles. The two men were among seven indicted in 2011 following an undercover investigation by the US Drug Enforcement Administration into drug trafficking in West Africa.
