|Sale 'threatens EU Burma embargo'
A European Union arms embargo against Burma is being threatened by Indian plans to sell an attack helicopter to the Rangoon regime, a new report says.
The report, from Amnesty International and a number of other NGOs, focuses on India's Advanced Light Helicopter. It says the ALH includes parts and technology from France, Belgium, the UK, Germany, Sweden and Italy.
Transferring the craft to Burma risks making a mockery of the EU's ban on all sales there, Amnesty says.
