A U.S. District Court here issued Thursday a temporary restraining order barring the government from designating a local charity group as a terrorist organization while a lawsuit to unfreeze its assets is pending.

The Kindhearts for Charitable Humanitarian Development sought the injunction in support of a lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) also on Thursday on behalf of the group helping Palestinian and Lebanese victims of war, natural disasters and poverty.
