Australia to Charge Man With Financing Terrorist Group in Syria

A 23-year-old man arrested during counter-terrorism raids in Melbourne today will be charged with funneling money to a U.S. citizen fighting with militants in Syria, Australian police said.

The man will be charged with making funds available to a terrorist organization, police said. Prosecutors will allege the man recruited the American, whom he befriended on social media, and sent him at least A$12,000 ($10,500), according to the Australian Federal Police.
