    Wednesday to seize control of a New York City office building partially owned by a company with ties to the Iranian government.

    The move by officials at the Treasury and Justice Departments is designed to stop the flow of funds they say are used to help Iran's efforts to build nuclear weapons.

    The office tower, located on New York's famed Fifth Avenue, was built by an Iranian non-profit group in the 1970s. Over the years the ownership of the building has evolved into what federal officials say is an attempt to hide the stake held by an Iranian state-owned bank.

    You'll forgive me if I first need to see true confirmation, other than a news report stating "the government alleges that...", before I believe this place had any nefarious ties.
