DUBAI, Dec 25 (Reuters) - As the financial system becomes increasingly interconnected, banks around the world are finding their activities scrutinised by an increasing number of regulators. The reach of U.S. regulators has also increased and banks are finding themselves in trouble for contravening American sanctions - sometimes even when they don't have operations in the United States. Below is a list of fines handed out to non-U.S.-based financial institutions between Dec. 1, 2012 and Dec. 23, 2013 by U.S. regulators.
