Pakistan madrassa blacklisted by US Treasury

The Treasury has branded the school in the city of Peshawar as a "terrorist training centre".

    The US Treasury has placed sanctions on an Islamic school - or madrassa - in northwest Pakistan, calling it a "terrorist training centre".

    The Treasury said the sanctions were the first to target an Islamic school.

    The school is located in the city of Peshawar, and Al Jazeera's Imtiaz Tyab gained exclusive access to the madrassa for Al Jazeera.
