Default IN THE NEWS - 2 indicted in $1M Army bribery scheme

WASHINGTON (AP) A federal grand jury has indicted two men for allegedly trying to bribe a U.S. Army contracting official with $1 million to win a road construction project in Afghanistan.
Rohullah Farooqi Lodin of Irvine, Calif., and Hashmatullah Farooqi of New York City each are charged with one count of conspiracy to defraud and commit an offense against the United States and one count of attempting to bribe a public official.
The indictment alleges the men offered $1 million in bribes to an Army captain. In exchange, the officer was to help disqualify lower bidders to build a road in Logar Province and award the project to two general contracting firms in Afghanistan.
Lodin and Farooqi allegedly claimed to represent the companies.
