Katherine Bacher at 12:00 AM ET

On October 5, 2010, the Bangkok Criminal Court dismissed charges of money laundering and fraud that had been brought against suspected Russian arms dealer Viktor Bout. The court stated that there was insufficient evidence, and other technicalities influenced the decision to drop the charges. The charges had been filed by Thai prosecutors in conjunction with US prosecutors. Bout could face charges in the US for conspiracy to kill US nationals and supporting terrorism.
