      London - The British Parliament on Thursday adopted a government
      proposal banning 15 more "terrorist" organisations that London accused
      of having ties with al-Qaeda.

      The measure will take effect on Friday.

      Home office (interior ministry) minister Hazel Blears, said the 15
      groups were "involved in terrorism" and have links with Osama bin
      Laden's al-Qaeda network, posing a danger to Britain.

      The 15 organisations will be added to a list of 25 international
      organisations already banned under Britain's 2000 anti-terrorism law.

      The latest banned groups include Ansar Al Islam, which has been blamed
      for a number of attacks in Iraq, and the Groupe Islamique Combattant
      Marocain (GICM - Moroccan Islamic Combattant Group), which is
      suspected of involvement in the attacks in Madrid in March 2004 and in
      Casablanca in May 2003.

      Other groups being added to the banned list are: Al Ittihad Al Islamia
      and Ansar Al Sunna, Harakat-ut-Jihad-ul-Islami,
      Harakat-ut-Jihad-ul-Islami (Bangladesh), Harakat-ut-Mujahideen/Alami,
      Hezb-e Islami Gulbuddin, Islamic Jihad Union, Jamaat ul-Furquan,
      Jundallah, Khuddam ul-Islam, Lashkar-e Jhangvi, Libyan Islamic
      Fighting Group and Sipah-e Sahaba Pakistan.
