US slaps sanctions on top Haqqani network commander

Washington, Wed, 02 Nov 2011 ANI

Washington, Nov 2 (ANI): The United States State Department has freezed the assets and property of Haqqani commander Mali Khan, after identifying him as a specially designated global terrorist.

 

It also bars Americans from providing Khan with any material support, the Dawn reports.

 

The department said Khan commanded hundreds of fighters who have committed numerous high-profile terrorist attacks in Afghanistan, and that one of his deputies supported suicide bombers that hit Kabul's Intercontinental Hotel in June, killing 12 people.

 

Khan was captured in September, but the department said his blacklisting strengthens US abilities to target the Haqqani network. (ANI)
