China blocks India bid to sanction Pak terrorist, who plotted Kandahar hijacking

China has delayed a proposal by India and the United States and India to sanction Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammad terrorist Abdul Rauf Azhar at the UNSC. India and the United States wanted Azhar, who plotted the Kandahar plane hijacking to a global travel ban and asset freeze. 14 members of a Security Council sanctions committee agreed but China blocked. "We placed a hold because we need more time to study the case. Placing holds is provided for by the Committee guidelines, and there have been quite a number of similar holds by Committee members on listing requests," a spokesperson for China's mission to the United Nations told Reuters.
