The assets of Muhammad Abdallah Hasan Abu-al-Khayr, a son-in-law of Osama Bin Laden, have been frozen in a bid to identify the sources for al-Qaida terrorist operations. From Tuesday 24th August onwards, Khayr will not have access to any of the assets that fall under US jurisdiction. Khayr is supposedly the next in the group as the chief financial officer.
The ruling of the US Treasury prohibits an American citizen from entering into any kind of financial transaction with Khayr. In response, the United Nations has also taken a similar stand asking its member nations to avoid any financial dealings.
Khayr features on the list of the 85 top wanted people by the Saudi Arabian government as well. He has supposedly been involved in the recruitment of al-Qaida members as well.
