Families of victims of terrorism pledged their support at a congressional committee hearing for legislation that would free frozen assets of terrorist countries and allow families to collect damages. Steven Flatow, whose daughter Alisa was killed in an Iranian-sponsored bus bombing in Israel in 1995, blamed the United States for changing its policy and blocking his collection of a $247 million court judgment. “The Iranians are still in the terror business and our own government has the dubious distinction of keeping them in it,” he said.
