US and Saudi sanction ‘six’

WASHINGTON, March 31, (AP): The US and Saudi Arabia on Thursday sanctioned four individuals and two groups suspected of raising funds for terrorists, including a man who grew up in Scotland and became a Taleban sympathizer.

Thursday’s action targeted James Alexander McLintock and his Pakistan-based Al-Rahmah Welfare Organization, which the Treasury Department said is a front organization that provides money for al-Qaida, the Taliban, Lashkar-e-Taiba and other Afghan extremists groups under the guide of helping orphans.

“As of early 2013, McLintock recruited Afghan insurgents to obtain photos of  children, Afghan identity documents and cell phone numbers to create falsified dossiers used to obtain donations,” Treasury said in a statement.
