The US Treasury has imposed economic sanctions on a Pakistani Islamic school it describes as a "terrorist training centre" which provides support to al-Qaeda and the Taliban.

In a statement it said that the Ganj madrassa in Peshawar was being used as a training and recruiting base.

The BBC's Charles Haviland was invited to the madrassa, where the principal vehemently deny the claims.

Mohammad Ibrahim said: "We teach our pupils religion, we don't preach extremism in this madrassa."
