Six years after 16-year-old American Daniel Wultz died of injuries sustained in a Tel Aviv suicide bombing, a US District Court judge awarded his family $332 million in damages from Iran and Syria.

The court found that Iran and Syria were responsible for providing material support for the April 17, 2006 attack, in which eleven people were murdered and over 60 others wounded when a Palestinian Islamic Jihad suicide bomber detonated a bomb laced with nails and other projectiles in a crowded fast food restaurant in south Tel Aviv.

In his ruling, Chief Justice Royce C. Lamberth said the bombing had been a "barbaric act" that had "no place in civilized society and represents a moral depravity that knows no bounds."
