Lawmakers Want Probe of Huawei Over Iran Sanctions

Six U.S. lawmakers have asked the State Department to investigate whether Chinese telecommunications-equipment maker Huawei Technologies Co. has violated U.S. sanctions on Iran by supplying it with sensitive communications technology that has been used for censorship. The lawmakers called on the department to "expeditiously investigate" whether Huawei violated U.S. sanctions passed by Congress in 2010 by providing technology to government-controlled telecoms that "has been used to restrict the speech of the Iranian people and the free flow of unbiased information in Iran."
