More than 400 people donating money to ISIS identified in France – prosecutor
French authorities have identified 416 people who gave money to Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS), France’s top anti-terror prosecutor said Thursday, as dozens of ministers met in Paris to discuss how to cut off funds for extremists. Francois Molins said that French security services had detected 320 fundraisers mainly based in Turkey and Libya who transferred the money to the jihadists, AFP reported. A two-day conference on combating the financing of terror groups began Wednesday at the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) bringing together around 80 ministers and 500 experts. French President Emmanuel Macron will close the event with a speech later Thursday.
