An Iranian court has found the US administration and dozens of American institutions and officials guilty of assassinations of Iranian nuclear scientists, ordering Washington to pay 4.3 billion dollars in compensation, APA reports citing Press TV.

Families of three killed nuclear scientists, along with a wounded nuclear scientist and wives of three nuclear scientists who sustained injuries themselves in terror attacks on their husbands had filed a lawsuit with a Tehran court against the US government, institutions, and authorities that were in office at the time of Israeli terror acts.

The crimes in question inflicted physical, psychological and financial damages on the families of the victims.

The US was ordered by the court to pay $4.3 billion in total compensation, including fines.

Those convicted are 37 American natural and legal persons, including former presidents Barack Obama and Donald Trump, former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, former Iran envoy Brian Hook, and former Defense Secretary Ashton Carter.
