STM32F429I-DISCO export restrictions?

I am based in South Africa and got a STM32F4 Discovery a while back, and now I tried to order a STM32F429I-DISCO, but Farnell gets back to me with:

Farnell will not accept our order for 2355377 / STM32F429I.
This item cannot be exported outside the EU without an export licence.

What on earth does it need an export license for? How is it any different from the STM32F4 Discovery? And here I thought it was only the US being so hard *** about export restrictions.
