WASHINGTON - The US Treasury Department on Thursday named a member of an al-Qaida group operating with Iranian support and banned Americans from any dealing with him.

The US Treasury accused Adel Radi Saqr al-Wahabi (al-Harbi) of working with a network that served as a pipeline for al-Qaida to move operatives and funds in South Asia and the Middle East.

It had previously targeted six other members of the group in June 2011.

"We will continue targeting this crucial source of al-Qaida's funding and support, as well as highlight Iran's ongoing complicity in this network's operation," David Cohen, Treasury undersecretary for terrorism and financial intelligence, said in a statement.
