US issues $20 million reward for American missing in Iran

US issues $  20 million reward for American missing in IranThe Trump administration on Monday offered a reward of up to $ 20 million for information about Robert Levinson, a former FBI agent who disappeared in Iran in 2007, and imposed new sanctions on leading Iranian officials as relations deteriorated further on the 40th anniversary of the U.S. Embassy takeover. The reward for help solving the Levinson disappearance and the sanctions also come as Iran said it was doubling the number of advanced centrifuges it operates to produce nuclear fuel, trimming the time experts believe that the Islamic Republic would need to have enough material to build a nuclear weapon. The State Department claims Levinson was taken hostage in Iran with the involvement of the Iranian regime.
