WASHINGTON (PANinfo-icon): The United States on Tuesday slapped sanctions on Haqqani Networkinfo-icon Commander Sangeen Zadran, blamed for a number of terrorist attacks in Afghanistaninfo-icon. The United Nations, too, has slapped sanctions on him.

Sangeen Zadran is the shadow governor for southeastern Paktika province, and commander of the Haqqani Network, a Talibaninfo-icon-affiliated group that operates from Pakistaninfo-icon's tribal region of North Waziristan. 

Also listed by the UN 1988 Sanctions Committee, Zadran helps lead fighters in attacks across southeastern Afghanistan and is believed to have planned and coordinated the movement of hundreds of foreign rebels into the country.

Zadran also has been connected to many improvised explosive device (IED) attacks.  In addition to his role in attacks, he is believed to have orchestrated kidnappings of Afghans and foreign nationals in the border region.

He also acts as a senior lieutenant to Haqqani Network leader Sirajuddin Haqqani, also a specially designated global terrorist and listed at the UN 1988 Sanctions Committee.
