WASHINGTON — The Obama administration has put the leader of al-Qaida in Iraq on a terrorism blacklist and is offering a $10 million reward for information on his whereabouts.

The State Department said Tuesday it has added Ibrahim Awwad Ibrahim Ali al-Badri, also known as Abu Du'a, to its list of specially designated terrorists. The move freezes any assets he may have in U.S. jurisdictions and bars Americans from providing him material support. At the same time, the department said its Rewards for Justice program would pay $10 million for information leading to his location.

Abu Du'a is accused of running al-Qaida in Iraq's large-scale operations, including an August attack on a Baghdad mosque and a major strike against Iraqi police in May in retaliation for the killing of Osama bin Laden.
