U.S. authorities arrested an alleged Hezbollah financier Friday on charges of violating U.S. terror-related sanctions, after he was apparently deported to the United States from Morocco.According to multiple media reports, Tajeddine was arrested on arrival in Casablanca on March 12 on a request by U.S. authorities.He arrived in the United States early Friday, but the Justice Department would not confirm that he had been handed over to the United States by Morocco.The charges unveiled Friday did not accuse him of any recent provision of financial support to Hezbollah.Instead, he was accused of restructuring his business organization after the 2009 designation in order to evade the sanctions and continue doing business with U.S. companies.
