US puts al-Qaida trainer from Bahrain on terrorism blacklist

July 17, 2012

The Washington Post on July 17, 2012 released the following:

“By Associated Press,

WASHINGTON — The Obama administration has placed a Bahraini man suspected of training members of al-Qaida on a terrorism blacklist.

The State Department announced Tuesday that Ahmed Abdulrahman Sihab Ahmed Sihab, also known as Abdulrahman al-Sharqi , has been identified as a “specially designated global terrorist.” The step freezes any assets that Sihab may have in U.S. jurisdictions and bars Americans from any financial transactions with him.

Sihab, who is accused of planning attacks for al-Qaida and training members to carry them out, faces terrorism charges in Bahrain and is subject to an Interpol Red Notice.”
