U.N. Imposes Sanctions on Bin Laden, Al Qaeda

January 17, 2002|Times Wire Services

The United Nations Security Council imposed sanctions against Osama bin Laden, his Al Qaeda terror network and remnants of the Taliban.

The resolution, adopted unanimously, requires all countries to impose an arms embargo and a travel ban on individuals and groups associated with them, while freezing their financial assets.

The United States strongly backed the resolution. A U.S. official said it will help accomplish the Bush administration's goal of going after the Taliban and Al Qaeda.
