On October 25, 2011, the Standing Committee of China's National People's Congress passed anti-terrorism legislation that defined terrorism in a way that would allow officials to bring charges against alleged terrorists more easily. The legislation allowed the assets of suspected terrorists to be frozen and their information released publicly. Other countries that have recently amended their anti-terrorism laws include the Philippines and Saudi Arabia.
