Chechen Insurgent Umarov Sanctioned by U.S. Under Terror Order

June 23 (Bloomberg) -- U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has designated Chechen insurgent leader Doku Umarov for anti-terrorism sanctions aimed at stemming the flow of money and other aid to him, the State Department said.

“The recent attacks perpetrated by Umarov and his operatives illustrate the global nature of the terrorist problem we face today,” State Department counter-terrorism coordinator Daniel Benjamin said in an e-mailed statement today. “We stand in solidarity with the Russian people in our condemnation of these deplorable terrorist acts.”

The U.S. action came on the eve of Russian President Dmitry Medvedev’s visit to Washington. Umarov claimed responsibility for dual suicide bombings in Moscow subway stations in March that killed 40 people.
