Consolidated List of Individuals and Entities Associated with Al-Qaida and the Taliban, Established and Maintained by the UN Security Council’s Al-Qaida Sanctions Committee

Published January 23, 2014

The UN Security Council's Al-Qaida Sanctions Committee, previously referred to as the 1267 Committee, maintains this list of individuals and entities associated with the Taliban and al-Qaeda.

Summary from the 2014 report:

The present report is the fifteenth to be submitted by the Analytical Support and Sanctions Monitoring Team, which supports the work of the Security Council and its Committee established pursuant to Security Council resolutions 1267 (1999) and 1989 (2011) and now referred to as the Al-Qaida Sanctions Committee. The Team finds that Al-Qaida (QE.A.4.01) remains a threat, even though it has not been able to recover its former strength. M eanwhile multiple Al-Qaida affiliates are evolving, often autonomously, with generational, geographical, ethnic, structural and operational changes in evidence. The overarching ideology of international terrorism remains central for all affiliate s, but local experiences and preferences generate varying operational trends. This presents a challenge for any analysis of Al-Qaida as a whole. The report also identifies three specific approaches to enhance sanctions implementation:

• First, deterring ransom payments to Al-Qaida and its affiliates to advance the assets freeze
• Second, using biometrics and changes to national inadmissible passenger criteria to advance the travel ban against listed individuals
• Third, improving analysis of and measures to limit component availability for improvised explosive devices used by Al-Qaida and its affiliates
