Will Bush's asset freeze work?
US President George W Bush has ordered a freeze on the assets of people and groups he says are linked to "terrorists". BBC News Online examines whether this can prevent attacks like the ones on the Pentagon and the World Trade Center.

What is the United States doing?

The US President has added a further 62 names to the list of 27 suspected terrorist associates announced in October.

The list includes organisations government classes as terrorist groups, their leaders, their supporters or non-profit groups seen as fronts - witting or otherwise - for the flow of money to suspected terrorists.

Investigators will also examine the records of all transactions relating to these assets.
