The U.S. Department of State has designated Shawki Ali Ahmed al-Badani, a mid-level leader of the al-Qa’ida in the Arabian Peninsula terrorist group, as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist under Executive Order 13224.  This move, which targets terrorists and those providing support to terrorists or acts of terrorism, means that all of al-Badani’s property and interests within the reach of the United States government is frozen.  Also, no U.S. citizen may engage in transactions with al-Badani, nor in any way support him.
