Pakistan seizes assets from JuD militant group

Pakistan on Wednesday began seizing assets from Jamaat-ud-Daawa (JuD), a UN-designated terrorist organisation, whose leader Hafiz Saeed is a prime suspect in the 2008 Mumbai attacks, officials said.

The move comes as Washington piles pressure on Pakistan to take action against Hafiz Saeed after he was released from house arrest in the eastern city of Lahore.

The interior ministry ordered authorities to take over "assets (moveable, immoveable and human resource) associated with" two of Hafiz Saeed's organisations, according to a notifcation that was obtained by AFP and dated to Saturday.
