Judge awards $44 million for '83 Beirut attack
Judge awards $44 million to victims of '83 attack in Beirut, but money will be hard to collect
By The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) ' A federal judge has awarded $44.6 million from Iran to victims of the 1983 suicide truck-bombing attack on U.S. Marines in Beirut. But the money will be difficult, if not impossible, to collect.

U.S. District Court Judge Royce Lamberth awarded the money Wednesday to two servicemen who were injured, Jeffery Paul O'Brien and Daniel Lane Gaffney, and their family members. The lawsuit claimed that Iran was involved in the attack, which killed 241 servicemen.

Lamberth said the court "applauds plaintiffs' persistent efforts to hold Iran accountable for its cowardly support of terrorism."



O'Brien and Gaffney were each awarded around $6.7 million.
