GERMANY-HEZBOLLAH
Germany bans Hezbollah-linked group that raised about $4.5 million from supporters

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Tuesday, April 8, 2014 5:34 AM EDT
BERLIN


German authorities have banned an organization they say has raised millions of dollars for the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah, which the European Union considers a terrorist organization.

Emily Haber, a deputy interior minister, said police raided 19 locations early Tuesday in six German states used by the so-called "Orphaned Children Project — Lebanon."

They seized 40 boxes of evidence, including Hezbollah paraphernalia, "many kilograms" of gold coins and two bank accounts containing about 65,000 euros in total.

Haber says the organization has about 80 members in Germany and has raised some 3.3 million euros ($4.5 million) for the Shahid Foundation since 2007. The Lebanon-based organization, whose name means "martyrs' foundation," has well-known links to Hezbollah and provides financial support to the families of slain fighters.
