Americans held hostage at the U.S. Embassy in Iran shortly after the Islamic revolution, will receive compensation through the 36 years after those events, according to ABC.
U.S. President Barack Obama has ordered to pay 4.4 million dollars to former hostages and 660 thousand dollars to family members.
American sources like to remind you that the agreement under which the hostages were released, prohibits claims for compensation against the Iranian regime.
Iranian militants seized 53 American citizens hostage in November 1979. They were released on the agreement in January 1981, after 444 days after the attack.
