WASHINGTON - The US Treasury Department on Thursday named six members that it said were members of an al-Qaida group operating with Iranian support and banned Americans from any dealing with them.

Treasury said the group was headed by Ezedin Abdel Aziz Khalil and described him as "a prominent Iran-based al-Qaida facilitator" operating under agreement with the Iranian government.
