Update: The Haqqani Network

Nov 15th, 2012 Current Affairs, Terrorism

Just two months after the United States designated the Haqqani network a “terrorist organization,” the network’s chief of suicide operations, Qari Zakir, has been deemed a “global terrorist” pursuant to the authority of a US executive order, according to CNN.

The article by CNN further states that the US decision regarding Mr. Zakir followed similar actions taken by the United Nations last Monday.

BBC News reports that the UN Security Council’s Taliban sanctions committee has officially included the Pakistan-based Haqqani network on its Taliban sanctions list. This, as discussed by BBC News, means the network will be subjected to a travel ban, arms embargo, and asset freezing.
