U.S. Freezes Terror Network Assets
WASHINGTON (AP) _ In a global crackdown, the Bush administration on Wednesday froze assets of Osama bin Laden’s financial networks in at least nine countries including the United States, where ties to the terrorist mastermind were found in four states.
The names of 62 entities and people were added to a list of suspected terrorist associates targeted by President Bush in an executive order signed last month. He planned to announce the new cases at the Treasury Department later Wednesday.
