Senate OKs promotion for member of Treasury crime unit

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Senate on Thursday confirmed Daniel Glaser for a top post in the Treasury Department's anti-terrorism unit.

Glaser's nomination to serve as the assistant secretary for terrorist financing was approved by the Senate in a voice vote.

Glaser has served as Deputy Assistant Secretary since November 2004 and was nominated by the White House in March to advance to assistant secretary.

The anti-terrorism unit works to combat money laundering, terrorist financing and other threats to the international financial system.
