Washington, Thu, 18 Oct 2012 ANI

Washington, Oct. 18 (ANI): The U.S. has imposed sanctions on three Pakistan-based men accused of being "terrorist facilitators" for their support for the Taliban and the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan.

Two of the men, identified as Maulawi Adam Khan Achakzai and Aamir Ali Chaudhry, were said to be bomb-makers for the Taliban in Afghanistan and the movement's Pakistan offshoot, Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP). The third was Uzbekistan-born Qari Ayyub Bashir, who helped arrange logistics and finance for the IMU, served as a recruiter in Pakistan, and led attacks in Afghanistan, reports The News.

The sanctions ban the men's access to U.S. business and financial services, forbidding U.S. individuals or companies from any transactions with them.

"Today's actions are intended to disrupt the activities of three individuals working to carry out violent attacks in Afghanistan and Pakistan that threaten the lives of civilians and military forces," said David Cohen, the Treasury's undersecretary for terrorism and financial intelligence.

"As these designations demonstrate, we will continue to work to dismantle the terrorist support networks operating in Afghanistan and Pakistan, paying special attention to those involved in the manufacture of IEDs" or improvised explosive devices," he added. (ANI)
