UN bans Lashkar-e-Taiba

May 06, 2005 21:25 IST

Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba has been banned by the United Nations for its links with Al-Qaeda.

The organisation, along with its aliases, has been banned under UN resolution 1267.

Under this section all states are obliged to freeze the assets, prevent their entry into or transit through their territories.

The resolution also asks the member countries to prevent direct or indirect supply, sale and transfer of arms and military equipments with entities belonging to the Taliban, Osama bin Laden and the Al-Qaeda.

Lashkar-e-Taiba was put on the list on May 2 with all its aliases, including Al-Mansoorian, a shadow outfit, which has nowadays been active in Jammu and Kashmir.
