New York – The U.N. Security Council is studying an international report on the possible involvement of the youngest son of former Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh in illegal financial transfers, diplomatic sources said in New York.

The report shows willingness to add Khaled Saleh to the list of those sanctioned internationally for his participation in managing his father’s funds and carrying out suspicious transfers.

These developments came as the Security Council held a hearing during which it was briefed by Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed, the U.N. Special Envoy for Yemen, and received the report of the experts’ panel of Sanctions Committee.

While the committee’ report was unveiled, sources said that it included activities of specific individuals and Khaled was on top of them.
