“The UN Security Council [Resolution 1267] unanimously imposed limited sanctions on the Taliban on 15 October [1999]–banning commercial aircraft flights to and from Afghanistan and freezing Taliban bank accounts world wide–even as Washington stepped up pressure on the Taliban to hand over Bin Laden.”

 – Ahmed Rashid, Taliban, Pages 78-79
