UNITED NATIONS, United States, May 1, 2019 (BSS/AFP) – A UN sanctions committee on Wednesday added Masood Azhar, the leader of a Pakistan-based Islamist group, on its list of global terrorists after China lifted its objections to the move.

The sanctions committee on the Islamic State and Al-Qaida announced in a press release the designation of Azhar, leader of Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM).
