UN Urges Nations to Submit Terror Reports

The Security Council called on 78 countries to urgently submit reports on their efforts to combat terrorism to the U.N. committee monitoring what governments are doing to stop terrorists from getting money, support and sanctuary. A presidential statement, adopted Tuesday by consensus by the council, endorsed the counter-terrorism committee’s plans to step-up its activities, including sending teams to visit countries which need assistance in their efforts to combat terrorism.
