U.N. Removes Soliman Al-Buthe From List

ASHLAND, Ore. – A Saudi-Arabian man, accused of raising money through an Ashland-based charity to fund oversea terrorist organizations, is no longer wanted by the United Nations.

The U.N. Security Council Committee monitoring sanctions against Al-Qaida removed Soliman Al-Buthe, now a deputy minister in Saudi Arabia, from the list on Monday.

He still faces arrest if he returns to the U.S., for allegedly smuggling $150,000 to Chechnyan terrorists. His co-defendant, Pete Seda, is serving 33 months in prison.
