On 15 July, the US State Department designated Anders Cameroon Ostensvig Dale, a Norwegian citizen, as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist under Executive Order 13224.  The State Department asserts that Dale has joined al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula (“AQAP”) and has been trained to make bomb belts, improvised explosive devices and larger explosives used in car bombs. Accordingly, Dale has been added to OFAC’s SDN List. AQAP was designated as a Foreign Terrorist Organization in January 2010.
