Narrative Summaries of reasons for listing.

I. General information

The Security Council Committee established pursuant to paragraph 6 of resolution 1267 (1999) (hereafter referred to as the Committee) oversees the implementation by States of the three sanctions measures (assets freeze, travel ban and arms embargo) imposed by the Security Council on individuals and entities subject to the sanctions measures.

In order to harmonise the format of all United Nations Security Council Sanctions Lists, a newly modified version of the Al-Qaida Sanctions List is available here. Narrative summaries with the new permanent reference numbers will be forth coming.

II. Composition of the list

The Al-Qaida Sanctions List consists of two sections, specified below:

  1. Individuals associated with Al-Qaida (233 individuals)
  2. Entities and other groups and undertakings associated with the Al-Qaida (70 entities)

All names and identifying information on the Al-Qaida Sanctions List have been submitted to the Committee by United Nations Member States and international organizations. Individuals are listed alphabetically by their family name/surname/last name as it appears in Latin script. Entities are also arranged in alphabetical order. All geographical locations are reproduced as submitted and are cited without prejudice to their political or legal status. Narrative summaries of reasons for listing, where available, can also be found on the Committee’s website. Members States are strongly encouraged, wherever possible, to submit to the Committee, through their Permanent Missions to the United Nations in New York, any relevant information not currently included on the Al-Qaida Sanctions List.

The Al-Qaida Sanctions List maintained on this website was last updated on 23 January 2015, and supersedes all previous versions. Further changes will be made to the Al-Qaida Sanctions List immediately following the relevant decision of the Committee. A press release documenting such changes will also be issued and posted in the "Press releases" section. The List is available in the PDF, XML and HTML formats.

III. Identifiers and acronyms in the list

The Al-Qaida Sanctions List has several fields for identifiers. Where information is lacking, the letters "na" (not available) denote that the Committee has not yet been able to obtain it. Explanations of the fields used in the Al-Qaida Sanctions List are provided below.


In many instances, individuals included in the List are represented by less than four names. There are several possible reasons for this, such as: a) information regarding some parts of the complete name is unavailable; or b) the naming convention used for that individual does not employ all four components. Users should bear in mind that there is no universal standard for transliterating Arabic and other names into Latin characters. This can result in a number of variations in spelling. Cross referencing names with other elements of the information contained in the List and searching for different possible spellings of the same name is therefore highly recommended.
