The head of the U.N. Security Council’s Sanctions Committee released his panel’s list of individuals with suspected ties to al-Qaeda and the Taliban. The list was created by the Security Council in 1999 after the U.S. Embassy bombings in East Africa. It subjects individuals to a travel ban, asset freeze and arms embargo.
