US Sets $12 Million Reward For 2 Al-Qaida Members

The Obama administration has offered up to $12 million in rewards for information leading to the location of two Iran-based al-Qaida leaders.

The U.S. says they're key facilitators in sending extremists to Iraq and Afghanistan. The State Department says it will provide up to $7 million for information on Muhsin al-Fadhli and $5 million for information on Adel Radi Saqr al-Wahabi al-Harbi.

The announcement Thursday coincided with new Treasury Department penalties against al-Harbi. Any assets he holds in the U.S. are now blocked and Americans are banned from doing business with him. Al-Fadhli is already subject to such restrictions.
