US declares Pakistan-based terrorists as global terrorists
February 08, 2018  13:28
The US today declared as global terrorists three individuals linked to Pakistan-based terror outfits like the LeT and the Taliban and asked Islamabad to deny sanctuaries to "dangerous" individuals and organisations.


As a result of today's designation, all property and interests in property of the trio -- Rahman Zeb Faqir Muhammad, Hizb Ullah Astam Khan and Dilawar Khan Nadir Khan - subject to US jurisdiction are blocked and the US citizens are prohibited from engaging in transactions with them.


The US Department of Treasury designated the trio as "global terrorists" for their links to terror outfits like Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) and the Taliban. This has been done as part of America's efforts to disrupt South Asian terrorist support networks, the Treasury said. -- PTI
