WASHINGTON, JULY 1 (AP) - U.S. President Bill Clinton renewed sanctions Friday intended to punish the ruling Taliban in Afghanistan for refusing to hand over suspected terrorist Osama bin Laden for trial. 


Clinton's order kept in force a national emergency declaration issued last July 4. The order, which must be renewed annually, freezes all property of the Taliban in the United States and prohibits trade involving the territory of Afghanistan controlled by the Taliban.


The Taliban have refused to turn over bin Laden, saying he is a guest and fellow Muslim. They have, however, assured that bin Laden has been prohibited from carrying out terrorist activities from

Afghan soil.


The Taliban rule almost 90 percent of the country, including its capital, Kabul. Northern-based opposition forces control the remainder of the country.
