WASHINGTON (AP) -- An Australian man who's charged in a scheme to export components for drones, torpedoes and other technology to Iran says he sold materials to Iran but didn't know he was breaking U.S. laws.

David Levick tells The Associated Press he first heard about the indictment when contacted by reporters Thursday. He says he hasn't spoken to any U.S. or Australian officials. In a telephone interview in Australia, Levick wouldn't say what materials he sold to Iran.

A five-count indictment returned in Washington accuses Levick of knowingly skirting a federal trade embargo with Iran and plotting to export the technology without required authorization.

Prosecutors say Levick and his company, ICM Components, Inc., ordered materials and aircraft parts from U.S. companies and concealed that the goods were intended for Iran.
