Iran blacklisted by global dirty money watchdog

The Financial Action Taskforce (FATF), a global dirty money watchdog, on Friday placed Iran on its blacklist after it failed to comply with international anti-terrorism financing norms, Reuters reports.

The decision came after more than three years of warnings from the Paris-based FATF urging the Islamic Republic to either enact terrorist financing conventions or see its reprieve from the blacklist lifted and some counter-measures imposed.
