Arab Bank PLC moved tens of millions of dollars for the Islamist group Hamas knowing it was likely to use the money to finance violence, a lawyer for victims of Hamas attacks told jurors on Thursday. The comments came at the outset of the first U.S. trial in a terror-financing lawsuit against a financial institution. The suit was filed under the Antiterrorism Act of 1990, which created an avenue for victims of international terrorism to seek reparations in U.S. courts.
