Australian police said on Tuesday (March 22) that they had arrested two people, including a 16-year-old girl, on charges that they had been involved in funding the operations of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), Australian media reports.

They were arrested in a Sydney suburb as part of counter-terrorism operations ‘aimed at thwarting attacks by domestic radicals at home and disrupting the flow of funds to foreign fighters overseas’.

“We anticipate that both these people will be charged later today and attend court and the charge that we anticipate they will have is one of financing terrorism,” New South Wales state police Deputy Commissioner Catherine Burn told reporters.

“We will be alleging that they were involved in obtaining money to send offshore to assist the Islamic State in its activities,” she said.
