The European Union will declare all wings of the militant Palestinian group Hamas a terrorist organization and freeze its assets after dozens of deadly attacks in Israel, the bloc's foreign ministers said Saturday.

The EU previously had blacklisted only the group's military arm, Izzedine al Qassam. But - taking a cue from Washington - it agreed Saturday to block funding to Hamas political offshoots, fund-raising charities and social welfare groups, after a suicide bus bombing last month that killed 22 people.
