FRANKFURT, April 2 Deutsche Boerse
said its Clearstream Banking SA business is cooperating with
U.S. authorities investigating it in connection with alleged
violations of U.S. money laundering and Iran sanction laws.
"The investigation is in a very early stage," Deutsche
Boerse said in a statement on Wednesday.
A U.S. grand jury is probing whether Clearstream Banking SA
took any steps to benefit Iran and its central bank, a court
filing showed, in a case that stems from the 1983 bombing of the
U.S. Marine barracks in Beirut.
