Jail for Briton who sold fake bomb detectors to Iraq

A fraudster who sold more than £55 million (HK$664 million) worth of fake bomb detectors to Iraq and other security hot spots has been jailed for 10 years at the Old Bailey court in London. Jim McCormick, 57, was found guilty of three counts of fraud over the sale of bogus explosive and drug detection devices for as much as £10,000 each, when they were based on £15 novelty golf ball finders.
