President George W. Bush's administration has blacklisted as an "international terrorist organization" a Lebanese Islamist group blamed for major fighting at a Lebanese refugee camp, the Associated Press has learned. The US State Department is expected to announce Monday the designation against al-Qaida-inspired Fatah al-Islam, which is suspected of having links with Syria. The designation imposes financial and travel restrictions on the group and its members, officials said Saturday, speaking on condition of anonymity because the designation is not yet public.
