A Sydney man has been arrested by the Australian Federal Police on charges relating to the supply of weapons of mass destruction, as well as breaching trade sanctions against North Korea. The 59-year-old, who's believed to have orginally come from South Korea, has lived in Australia for the past thirty years and is accused of trying sell missile guidance systems and other missile componentry on behalf of the North Korean government. Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull says more punative measures are needed to rein in the rogue state.
