The four men are believed to hold leadership positions in the banned Pakistani militant group Lashkar-e-Tayyaba that is accused of orchestrating last month's attacks that left 171 dead in Mumbai.
Designated as terrorists subject to U.N. sanctions were Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi, Lashkar's operations chief; Muhammad Saeed, the group's leader; Haji Muhammad Ashraf, its chief of finance; and Mahmoud Mohammad Ahmed Bahaziq, a financier with the group.
The Security Council's al-Qaida and Taliban sanctions committee added them to its list of terrorists subject to the assets freeze, travel ban and arms embargo under a council resolution adopted this year.
The U.S. Treasury Department last week designated the men as terrorists and ordered any U.S. assets frozen.[/q]
