U.S. targets Norwegian for joining al-Qaeda

WASHINGTON, July 15 (Xinhua) -- The United States announced Tuesday it has designated a Norwegian citizen as a terrorist for joining al-Qaeda's branch in Yemen.

Anders Cameroon Ostensvig Dale traveled to Yemen to join al- Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) and has received terrorist training and was taught to make explosives, the State Department said in a statement.

As a result of the designation, all property subject to U.S. jurisdiction in which Dale has any interest is blocked and U.S. persons are generally prohibited from engaging in any transactions with Dale or to his benefit, according to the statement.

The Department of State designated AQAP as a Foreign Terrorist Organization in January 2010 and has since blacklisted many of the group's leaders as terrorists.
