AFP: Bush administration re-designated Mojahedin-e Khalq organization, Al-Qaeda and 23 other groups as the "foreign terrorist groups" and announced that supporting these groups by the people of the U.S. is banned. State Department spokesman Richard Boucher, while making the announcement, said the listing was based on the groups' activities over the past two years. "By re-certifying them as foreign terrorist organisations and publishing that decision today in the Federal Register, we preserve the U.S. government's ability to take action against them in accordance with the provisions of the Immigration and Nationality Act," Boucher said. The act makes it illegal for people in the United States or subject to U.S. jurisdiction to provide material support to the terrorist groups. It requires U.S. financial institutions to block assets held by them and enables the U.S. to deny visas to representatives of these groups. Boucher said Secretary of State Colin Powell made the decision in consultation with the attorney general and the secretary of the treasury after a thorough review of these groups' terrorist activities over the past two years. "As we carry on the global campaign against terrorism, we hope this list will help to isolate these terrorist organisations, to choke off their sources of financial support, and to prevent their members' movement across international borders," Boucher said.
