Party rejected

ISLAMABAD - Pakistan's electoral commission on Wednesday barred from contesting elections a new political party that is backed by an Islamist with a $10 million US bounty on his head, a government official said. Haroon Khan, a spokesperson for the commission, said a four-man panel rejected the registration of Milli Muslim League (MML) as an official political party.

Rewards for tip-offs

BEIRUT - Lebanon's Hizbollah group dismissed multi-million-dollar rewards offered by the US for the arrest of two of its senior members, saying on Wednesday they would have no impact. Washington has offered up to $7 million for information leading to the detention of Talal Hamiyah, head of Hizbollah's foreign operations, and up to $5m for Fuad Shukr, a top Hizbollah military operative.

Arab Bank liability

WASHINGTON - Conservative US Supreme Court justices on Wednesday signalled concern about allowing companies to be sued under American law for human rights abuses abroad in a case involving allegations that Arab Bank Plc helped finance militant attacks in Israel and the Palestinian territories.
