Seven added to U.S. terrorism list, including jailed British preacher

Anjem Choudary, 50, who was imprisoned in Britain in September for five and a half years for encouraging support for Islamic State, was added to a list of specially designated global terrorists by the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Asset Control and the U.S. State Department.

Choudary was one of seven people added to the list, which blocks their assets in the United States and prohibits U.S. citizens from dealing with them, the Treasury said.
