Judge: Iran to blame for Khobar Towers

Posted by DarthDilbert at 12/22/2006 07:22:00 PM

Federal judge Royce C. Lamberth has ruled that Iran not only financed the 25 June 1996 terrorist attack at the Khobar Towers dormitory near Dhahran, Saudi Arabia which killed nineteen Americans, but they must pay $254 million to the families of the victims. The question now is to determine if this ruling provides an opening for the dozens of Americans who were held hostage by Iran from 4 November 1979 until 20 January 1981.
