Germany busts Iranian with $70m

BBERLIN (AP) — An Iranian man faces a hefty fine after trying to enter Germany with a check worth about $70 million in his hand luggage.

Customs officials at Duesseldorf airport say the man, who had arrived on a flight from Turkey, told officers he was carrying less than the €10,000 ($13,644) threshold that needs to be declared.

But when officers searched the unidentified 59-year-old’s bags they found a check for 300 million Venezuelan Bolivares issued by the Bank of Venezuela.
