 China Blocks Terrorist Tag For 26/11 Handler Sajid Mir

China has blocked a proposal moved by the U.S. and India at the United Nations Security Council to designate Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) terrorist Sajid Mir as a global terrorist. Mir is one of India’s most wanted and the main handler of the 2008 Mumbai attacks. The U.S. has placed a bounty of $5 million on him for his role in the 26/11 attacks. In June this year, he was jailed for over 15 years in a terror-financing case in Pakistan. Last month, China put a hold on a proposal by the U.S. and India at the United Nations to blacklist Abdul Rauf Azhar, the brother of Jaish-e Mohammed (JeM) chief Masood Azhar. In June, China blocked a similar move by the U.S. and India to list Pakistan-based terrorist Abdul Rehman Makki as a global terrorist. Makki is the brother-in-law of Lashkar-e-Taiba chief and 26/11 mastermind Hafiz Saeed.
