Dawood to be put on U.N. watch list

New Delhi Dec. 7. Underworld don Dawood Ibrahim will soon be put on a United Nations' terrorist watch list following a request from the United States that will require the member-countries to freeze his assets, bank accounts and ban international travel. The U.S. Treasury Department, soon after the October 16 announcement declaring Dawood Ibrahim a specially designated global terrorist with links to two outlawed militant outfits — Al-Qaeda and the Laskhar-e-Taiba, had asked the United Nations to put his name on its watch-list in accordance with relevant Security Council resolutions, a Pakistan news magazine, The Herald, said.

The U.N. listing would mean that Pakistan and Gulf states such as the UAE will be required to initiate action against the `D-Company', the name for the Dawood network, The Herald said.
