Federal prosecutors in New York charged seven men Monday with offering to smuggle millions of dollars worth of narcotics into the U.S. for the Taliban in Afghanistan and attempting to sell weapons to people they believed represented the organization.

The charges, laid out in an unsealed indictment, allege that some of the men—two of whom are U.S. citizens—sought to aid the terrorist group by offering to helping smuggle large quantities of heroin and cocaine into the U.S. and allow the Taliban to later sell the drugs for a profit.

The complaint also accuses some of the men of agreeing to sell surface-to-air missiles, among other weapons, to the Taliban in an effort to protect the organization's purported heroin labs against the American war effort.

The defendants, who allegedly believed they were providing support to representatives of the Taliban, were actually dealing with undercover informants for the Drug Enforcement Administration.

Five of the suspects—Maroun Saade, Walid Nasr, Francis Sourou Ahissou, Corneille Dato and Marin Raouf Bouraima—were arrested in Liberia late last week and have since been transported to the U.S. The other defendants, U.S. citizens Alwar Pouryan and Oded Orbach, were arrested in Romania Saturday and are awaiting extradition.

Lawyers for the defendants couldn't be reached for comment.
