Two Muslims arrested for ‘Islamic State’ fundraising in Australia

Police in Australia said Tuesday that two people, including a 16-year-old girl, had been apprehended over allegations of raising money to support the self-styled “Islamic State” (IS). Authorities in the state of New South Wales issued a warning against the “trend of teenage children” getting involved in such crimes.

“We anticipate that both these people will be charged later today and attend court and the charge that we anticipate they will have is one of financing terrorism,” said state police Deputy Commissioner Catherine Burn in a press conference. “We will be alleging that they were involved in obtaining money to send offshore to assist the “Islamic State” in its activities.
