BBC NEWS | World | Middle East | US family sues 'Hamas-linked' charities: "This week, a piece of the Arab-Israeli conflict is being transferred from the dusty streets of the West Bank to the chilly winds and sleek skyscrapers of downtown Chicago.

The Boim family accuse Chicago charities of links with Hamas
The family of David Boim, an American teenager shot dead by Hamas at a West Bank bus stop in 1996, is suing a group of Chicago-based organisations who they say helped fund Hamas operations.
It will be the first courtroom test of a piece of federal anti-terror legislation passed in the early 1990s, which supporters say helps strike a blow at terror support networks. "
