US ups pressure to choke terror groups’ financing


WASHINGTON: After recent terrorist attacks in the West, the United States has increased pressure on Pakistan to prevent certain outfits from collecting donations inside the country, diplomatic sources told Dawn.

The sources also said that three organisations — Falah Insanyet, Ganj Madressah and Lashkar-e-Taiba/Jamaatud Dawa — topped the US list. All three have been declared terrorist outfits by the US State Department as well as the United Nations.
