09:04, October 19, 2012

WASHINGTON, Oct. 18 (Xinhua) -- The U.S. Department of the Treasury on Thursday blacklisted Adel Radi Saqr al-Wahabi al-Harbi, a Saudi national accused of being a key figure of the al-Qaida network in Iran that supports terrorist activities in South Asia and the Middle East.

As deputy to Muhsin al-Fadhli, allegedly a veteran al-Qaida operative and the current leader of the network in Iran, al-Harbi facilitates the travel of extremists to Afghanistan or Iraq via Iran, and is believed to have sought funds to support al-Qaida attacks, the Treasury said.

It added that before joining the al-Qaida network in Iran in early 2011, al-Harbi was already on the Saudi Ministry of Interior 's most wanted list and charged with traveling to Afghanistan to join al-Qaida and providing technical support on the Internet to the terrorist group.
