(AP) The U.S. is designating Muhammad Jamal as a global terrorist under an executive order that targets those linked to terrorism.


The State Department's declaration Monday blocks any property Jamal or his network may have in U.S. jurisdiction and bans U.S. citizens from engaging in any transactions that would benefit him.


Jamal learned how to make bombs in the late 1980s from al-Qaida in Afghanistan and formed his own network with terrorist training camps in Egypt and Libya after being released from an Egyptian prison in 2011. In the 1990s, Jamal became a top military commander of the Egyptian Islamic Jihad then headed by Ayman al-Zawahiri, the chief of the al-Qaida network.
