U.N.S.C sanctions alleged Lashkar members

The Security Council's al Qaeda and Taliban Sanctions Committee added to the list: group leader Muhammad Saeed, chief of operations Zakir Rehman Lakhvi, finance chief Haji Muhammad Ashraf and financier Mahmoud Mohammad Ahmed Bahaziq.

Bahaziq was also a former leader of the group in Saudi Arabia.

Individuals and groups on the list are subject to an assets freeze, travel ban and arms embargo.

The designation also covered all aliases and affiliates of LeT, including Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD), a charity formed after the ban on LeT which India and the United States believe is a front for the group.

Lahkvi was one of two LeT leaders arrested this week, Pakistani Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani said earlier Wednesday. Zarar Shah, described as a top operational commander, also was arrested.
