16-year-old Australian schoolgirl charged for funding ISIS

ISIS

Sydney: A 16-year-old schoolgirl was set to be charged on Tuesday with raising money to support the Islamic State group, Australian police said, warning of a “trend of teenage children” involved in such activities.

The girl and a 20-year-old man were arrested in the western Sydney suburb of Guildford in the morning, New South Wales state police Deputy Commissioner Catherine Burn said. “We will be alleging that they were involved in obtaining money to send offshore to assist the Islamic State in its activities,” Burn said.

“The girl is not somebody who is well-known to us, however it is disturbing that we are continuing to see a trend of teenage children involved in activities,” he added.
