Six men have been arrested in a terrorist case in Denmark. They are charged with financing and affiliation with the extremist group ISIS, the East Jutland police announced on Tuesday.

The arrested are between 27 and 35 years old. Four of them have been arrested in the Aarhus area and two in Copenhagen, the press release noted.

The arrest took place after a collaborative effort between the East Jutland Police, the Police Intelligence Service (PET), and the Copenhagen Police.

Two of them are accused of having traveled to Syria in the summer of 2014, where they are said to have joined ISIS. One, a 29-year-old man, is accused of having tried to return to Syria in the spring of 2015 and join the terrorist group.

Financing terrorism

Five of the six are charged with financing terrorism. The previously mentioned 29-year-old is said to have sent money to ISIS from 2013 to 2017 while he was in Aarhus.

The police believe he has used the others in the case as intermediaries, who have sent money to people with connections to ISIS at his request.

Five of the six will be produced for custody in Aarhus on Tuesday.
