The Treasury Department took action Thursday against five people it accused of providing financial support to terror groups as well as facilitating acts of terror in Iraq, Kuwait and elsewhere. The department's action means that any financial assets belonging to these people that are found in the United States are frozen, and Americans are barred from doing business with them. "These individuals support every stage of the terrorist life cycle, from financing terrorist groups and activity, to facilitating deadly attacks and inciting others to join campaigns of violence and hate," said Stuart Levey, the department's undersecretary for terrorism and financial intelligence. Those added to the department's list of terrorist financiers are: Najmuddin Faraj Ahmad, better known as Mullah Krekar, a Kurdish citizen of Iraq; Hamid Al-Ali, Jaber Al-Jalamah and Mubarak Mushakhas Sanad Al-Bathali, all citizens of Kuwait; and Mohamed Moumou, listed as a citizen of both Sweden and Morocco.
