Every type of equipment the U.S. military has at its disposal is on sale at the Gomrok bazaar in south Tehran's Razi Square, the merchants say, and The Daily Star has found evidence that they could be telling the truth.Another merchant said he was trying to sell a Boeing Apache helicopter, while a third laid out night-vision equipment.The merchants who spoke about illicit trade in weapons said they did not want to be identified for fear of arrest by the Iranian police. The traders would not allow any items whose sale is illegal in Iran to be photographed.The Daily Star confirmed that dozens of identifying numbers on items being sold at the bazaar match up with information on actual contracts that are viewable in U.S. government databases.Some of the older merchandise could have been among the billions of dollars worth of equipment that U.S. troops left behind when they withdrew from Iraq, while newer products might be items that the Army is unloading as it pulls out of Afghanistan.
