U.S. close to decision on Haqqani terrorist label: Clinton

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Wednesday that Washington was close to making a decision on whether to designate the Pakistan-based Haqqani network as a foreign terrorist group.

"We are in the final, formal review that has to be undertaken to make a government-wide decision to designate the network as a foreign terrorist organization," Clinton told reporters in an appearance with Egypt's visiting foreign minister.
