Iran said Tuesday it was "completely unfair" for U.S. lawyers to try to seize its overseas assets as compensation for the victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.Since Iran rejects the accusation and refuses to pay, the lawyers are now trying to access $1.6 billion of Iranian money frozen in a Luxembourg bank, according to a report in The New York Times Monday.The U.S. Supreme Court ruled last year that $2.1 billion frozen in a Citibank account in New York should be given to the U.S. victims of the 1983 bombing – a verdict Iran is contesting at the International Court of Justice.
