UN sanctions 5th British national fighting with ISIL

The UN Security Council Sanctions Committee has added a 5th UK national said to be connected with ISIL to its Al-Qaida counter terrorist list, following the 4 that were added earlier this week at the UK’s request (see previous blog). The 5th person is Aseel Muthana, who travelled to Syria in early 2014 and is brother of the already listed Nasser Muthana. The narrative summary of the reasons for his designation says that he is a “foreign terrorist fighter with Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant…wanted by the authorities of the United Kingdom.”
