A United Nations Security Council committee has named four additional persons associated with Osama bin Laden who are subject to international sanctions.

The four - Ummah Tameer E-Nau, Majeed Sultan, Bashir-Ud-Din Mahmood and Mohammed Abdul Tufail - go by various aliases which are detailed in a list published by the Security Council committee on Afghanistan yesterday. The new entries supplement a consolidated list issued by the panel late last month.

Under Security Council resolution 1333 (2000), States must "freeze without delay funds and other financial assets of Osama bin Laden and individuals and entities associated with him as designated by the Committee."

Also yesterday, the Security Council committee on Liberia issued a revised list of persons affected by the sanctions imposed on that country by Council resolution 1343 (2001). According to that text, all States are expected, among other measures, to prevent the entry or transit through their territories of the persons named on the list.
