International conference to combat terror financing in Paris

PARIS, April 26, 2018 (AP) — Ministers from more than 70 countries are discussing ways to combat financing for the Islamic

State group and Al-Qaida at an international conference in Paris.

The initiative was launched by French President Emmanuel Macron to co-ordinate efforts to reduce the terror threat in the

long term. A string of attacks have killed 245 people in France since January 2015 and dozens of others have been thwarted.

The French organisers noted that IS military defeats on the ground don’t prevent the group from pursuing its terrorist

activities, along with Al-Qaida –especially in unstable regions of Afghanistan, Malaysia, the Philippines, Yemen, Egypt and

sub-Saharan Africa.

Thursday’s meeting gathers ministers of justice, finance, foreign affairs and the interior from Western countries, the Arab

world and other nations as well as representatives of 18 international organizations.
