Foreign Terrorist Organizations List (U.S. State Department)

Published 2010

The U.S. State Department's Office of the Coordinator for Counterterrorism maintains this list of designated foreign terrorist organizations, which it defines as "foreign organizations that are designated by the Secretary of State in accordance with section 219 of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), as amended. FTO designations play a critical role in our fight against terrorism and are an effective means of curtailing support for terrorist activities and pressuring groups to get out of the terrorism business."
