Swedish, Norwegian police arrest 6 in anti-terror raids
Swedish and Norwegian authorities cracked down on terror financing on Thursday, arresting six people in what Swedish investigators said were coordinated raids in Stockholm and Oslo.
Three men arrested early Thursday in the Swedish capital were suspected of funneling money to terror organizations in Somalia, Prosecutor Ronnie Jacobsson told The Associated Press.
The men — all Swedish citizens — also faced suspicions of preparing terrorist acts, which Jacobsson said "could consist of financially promoting a terror crime."
Just minutes before the Swedish operation was announced, Norway's police intelligence agency PST said it had arrested three people in separate locations in Oslo on suspicion of financing terror.
It did not reveal their nationalities. Newspaper VG reported on its Web site that they were Somali immigrants, but did not cite its sources.
