US slaps terror sanctions on 5 people as operatives for al-Qaida, Taliban or Haqqani network
WASHINGTON (AP) ' The Obama administration has designated five people as terrorists for their support for al-Qaida, the Taliban or the Haqqani network.
The action blocks any assets the men have in the United States and bans Americans from doing business with them.
The Treasury Department says the sanctions continue U.S. efforts to "choke off streams of financial and other support to terrorists."
The individuals targeted include a Taliban and an al-Qaida financier, a Pakistan-based businessman who has helped invest Taliban money, a militant who has conducted an attack in Afghanistan and a key commander in the Haqqani network.
