BNP Paribas sued by victims who lost loved ones in embassy bombings

American courtroom

A group of victims who lost family or were injured in two US embassy bombings in Africa are suing BNP Paribas for $2.4bn, alleging the bank helped finance the terrorist attacks by doing business with blacklisted nations.

The New York Post reports that the suit, filed in Washington federal court late Wednesday, is the first to target a global bank that has been penalized for violating US economic sanctions.

In June 2014, BNP paid a record $9bn fine for helping clients dodge sanctions on Iran, Sudan and other rogue countries under a settlement with the Justice Department and New York’s Department of Financial Services.
