The assets of a Columbia-based charity with alleged ties to international terrorism will remain frozen. A federal judge in Washington, D.C., has refused to lift the freeze that was imposed by the federal government following an October raid on the Columbia headquarters of the Islamic American Relief Agency. The allegation from the Justice Department is that the Agency has ties to the Sudan-based Islamic African Relief Agency, which is linked to international terrorism. The judge ruled the government has provided enough evidence to justify its actions. An attorney for the Columbia organization insists there has been no wrongdoing.
