The Pakistani scientist at the centre of a black market in nuclear weapons is said to have displayed sensitive equipment and brochures for atom bomb technology at a Pakistani arms fair.
Pakistan's government has denied any knowledge of the black market activities of Abdul Qadeer Khan, and his Khan Research Laboratories.
However, Jane's Defence Weekly has reported the laboratories had run a stall at the international arms trade fair in Karachi in November 2000, and displayed components used in the production of weapons-grade uranium.
Jane's obtained the brochures for weapons-related technology, and inquired whether all of the listed items were available for sale.
Several KRL officials said all had government approval for export.
