Federal prosecutors Thursday moved to seize U.S. assets allegedly held by the government of Iran, including a mosque and school in the Potomac area, land in Prince William County and a 36-story Manhattan office building.

The U.S. attorney in Manhattan filed a civil complaint in federal court seeking the forfeiture of more than $500 million in assets of the Alavi Foundation and another alleged front company. The complaint also targets mosques in California, New York and Texas.
