UN Council Adopts New Anti-Terror Resolution

The U.N. Security Council voted unanimously on Friday for a Russian-initiated resolution that seeks to expand the prosecution and extradition of terrorist groups and suspects, such as Chechen separatists. But after challenges from Islamic nations, Algeria and Pakistan, Russia deleted a call for a global blacklist of terror suspects, now confined to Al Qaeda and the Taliban. Instead it created a working group to consider measures “to be imposed upon individuals, groups or entities” involved in terrorist activities. “While we all agree that acts against civilians are terrorist acts, there is no similar consensus on what are the rights of people struggling against foreign occupation,” Pakistan’s U.N. ambassador, Munir Akram, told reporters.
