Iranian Lawmakers Call for Compensation from U.S.

(Press TV-Iran) Iranian lawmakers introduced an urgent bill on Monday demanding compensation from the U.S. for "the damages which it has inflicted" on the country since 1953. The draft bill listed 11 cases for which Iran sought damages from the American government, including the loss of lives and property damage resulting from the CIA-led 1953 coup. It also sought compensation for more than 223,000 Iranians killed and 600,000 injured "due to American intelligence, political and military cooperation" with former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein in his 1980-1988 war with Iran.
