Jan 21 (Reuters) - A former engineer for defense contractors has been indicted on charges that he tried to send Iran secret details on the U.S. Air Force's F-35 joint strike fighter program, the office of the U.S. Attorney for Connecticut said on Tuesday.

The accused man, Mozaffar Khazaee, is a dual U.S. and Iranian citizen who lived in Connecticut before recently moving to Indianapolis, prosecutors said. Khazaee, 59, was arrested on Jan. 9 at Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey, they said. (Reporting by Alex Dobuzinskis in Los Angeles; Editing by Cynthia Johnston)
