UK Muslims used aid convoys to smuggle funds to Syrian terrorists

syed-hoque-muslim-terroristA group of UK-based Islamic extremists used charity convoys taking food and medicine to Syria as a cover to smuggle money to terrorists, a court has heard.

The four men allegedly sent £4,500 to a fighter with Al Qaeda-linked group Jabhat al-Nusra so he could buy a sniper rifle and other military equipment.

They also plotted to set up a ‘night team’ of terrorist snipers in the war-torn country, it was claimed.
