UK freezes ISIL men’s assets 3 added to list of sanctions

LONDON, July 5, (RTRS): The British government on Friday froze the assets of three British citizens reported to have been involved in terrorism-related activities in Syria.

The Treasury added Nasser Muthana and Reyaad Khan, both from Cardiff, and Ruhul Amin, from Aberdeen, to its list of people targeted for financial sanctions, according to the list posted on its website. Muthana, a 20-year old student, appeared in an online video last month urging Muslims to join the militant group the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), his father Ahmed Muthana told the BBC.

Khan is a schoolfriend of Muthana and also appeared in the video for ISIL along with Amin, various media reports said. Amin also has Bangladeshi nationality, according to the website. ISIL has in recent weeks seized control of large parts of northern Iraq and declared an Islamic ‘caliphate’ spanning adjacent parts of Syria and Iraq, renaming itself simply the Islamic State.
