U.S.: Judge Orders Syria to Compensate Terror Victims

A federal judge in Washington ruled on Tuesday that Syria must pay more than $1 billion each to 26 victims of the deadly 1985 terrorist attacks on the Rome and Vienna airports.

The judge concluded that the attacks by the Abu Nidal Organization could not have taken place "without Syria's direct support."
