New Delhi: France is leading Western efforts to collar Pakistan-based terrorist Maulana Masood Azhar whose group Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) has claimed responsibility for the Pulwama attack that killed at least 40 Indian security personnel. France will move a proposal at the UN in a “couple of days" to designate Azhar a global terrorist, a foreign diplomat familiar with the development said on Tuesday.
