Denmark: Money going for al-Qaeda attacks

People and networks in Denmark are probably sending money abroad which is being used to finance terror acts by al-Qaeda against Danish interests, according to a new report from the Center for Terroranalyse (CTA).

The collection of money is done through private organizations, which also have humanitarian projects, and therefore there's a risk that people are unknowingly supporting bomb attacks.

"Networks which collect money for global terrorism groups abroad, in some cases send the money directly to conflict areas, for example Iraq, the Palestinian Authority, Somalia, Afghanistan, Lebanon and Pakistan.  In other cases the money is sent through other countries," according to the CTA report, which is part of the Danish Security Service.

It is hard for the authorities to prove that the money is being used for terrorism, since the networks often use several intermediates during he transactions.
