The U.S. Treasury Department has sanctioned the American financial accounts of four Hezbollah militants.
Officials say the militants have plotted attacks far beyond the Shiite group's base in Lebanon.
David Cohen is a Treasury undersecretary. Cohen says new details about the militants show how broadly Hezbollah has spread, especially in the Mideast.
Officials say one of the four militants is a senior commander who for 20 years has overseen Hezbollah operations in Israel, Jordan, Cyprus, Turkey, Syria, Egypt and Yemen. Treasury officials said Khalil Harb served as Hezbollah's military liaison between Iran and Palestinian-based groups.
Also sanctioned was Mohammed Kawtharani, a member of Hezbollah's political council who aided Shiite militants in Iraq and helped free a most-wanted terrorist there.
