He told MPs today (Thursday) that he had had instructed the Bank of England to give the order to all financial institutions to freeze funds.

The Chancellor said the authorities must do all they can ‘to ensure there is no hiding place for terrorists and no hiding place for those who finance terrorism’.

Those believed to be responsible for his murder belong to the Tawhid and Jihad group. It is not known whether they have any UK assets.
