WASHINGTON - The United States dubbed former Lebanese government minister Michel Samaha a terrorist and froze his assets on Monday, saying he had supported attempts by Syria to incite violence in Lebanon.

The US Treasury designated Samaha, a former minister of information and tourism, as a "global terrorist" and said he had collaborated with the government of Syrian President Bashar Assad to destabilize Lebanon.

"The United States will continue to expose any attempts by the (Assad) regime to meddle in the affairs of its neighbors and further destabilize the region," Treasury said in a statement.
