EU Adds Hamas Leader Yahya Sinwar to Terrorist List

(Euronews-France) Mared Gwyn Jones - The European Union added Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar to the EU's terrorist list on Tuesday. The move allows the bloc to freeze Sinwar's funds and other financial assets in EU member states, and to prohibit EU-based operators from making economic resources available to him.

He was added to the U.S. terrorism list in 2015.
