WASHINGTON - The US Treasury on Tuesday said it had sanctioned Abdullah Ibrahim al-Faisal for recruiting for ISIS, alleging the Jamaican cleric had influenced people around the world in attacking civilians and creating bomb plots and also had helped new recruits to the extremist group travel and hide.

The New York County District Attorney's office has already indicted Faisal with recruiting and providing support to members of the ISIS group, Treasury said. Faisal was jailed in 2003 in London for inciting racial hatred and murder, and then paroled and deported to Jamaica in 2007, according to The Anti-Defamation League, which fights antisemitism worldwide.
