Italy smashes jihadi funding network operating across Europe

Italian police have arrested 14 people, including 11 Syrians and 3 Moroccans, suspected of financing jihadis in Syria.

Police believe the money was mostly raised by Syrian nationals in Muslim communities in Sweden, Italy, Hungary and Turkey and laundered out of the country by the gang.

The group are said to have been funnelling money to the al-Qaeda-linked Al-Nusra Front.

Officials believe that millions of Euros were transferred out of the country using an informal system which created a “secure channel for money laundering”  which bypassed the need for traditional banks.

The money would then go to jihadists operating across Syria.

This just shows how monumental the terror threat is across Europe.
