Germany: three arrested on suspicion of sending money to IS

German authorities declare they've arrested three youthful men suspected of giving money to members of the Islamic State grouping and planning to fight for it.

Stuttgart prosecutors said the three — a twenty-five-year-old German national and two Turkish citizens aged twenty and 25 — were arrested in and around the southern city of Ulm on Sun on suspicion of financing terrorism.

Prosecutors said in a statement Wednesday that authorities had already banned the three from leaving Germany to prevent them heading off to train with IS. They said the men are suspected of sending money, collected while distributing copies of the Quran, directly or indirectly to members of IS.

A judge on Monday ordered the men, whose names weren't given, held in custody pending possible charges.
