Treasury freezes assets of four Syrians

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Treasury froze assets of four Syrians on Thursday, saying they facilitated the flow of money, weapons and terrorists through Syria to al Qaeda in Iraq.

"Since the fall of Saddam Hussein's regime, Syria has become a transit station for al Qaeda foreign terrorists on their way to Iraq," Stuart Levey, undersecretary for terrorism and financial intelligence, said in a statement.

The four Syrians are said to be members of Abu Ghadiyah's network, the Treasury Department said.
