ISIL financing cell in France

In France, five people are believed to have been part of a financing cell that funded ISIL in Syria and may have also provided funds to individuals seeking to travel to join the group. 

The cell, made up of three men and two women, transferred funds to the Islamic State via Turkey. One of the individuals in the cell worked for a money services business. 

Analysis: The individual in question may have used his or her access to the money services business to move funds, potentially by using false names, providing incomplete information, or simply not flagging the transaction as suspicious.
