U.S. Woman Accused of Assisting Al-Qaeda Detained in Germany



BERLIN – A U.S. woman has been arrested in the southwestern German town of Heilbronn accused of providing members of the al-Qaeda terror group with clothing, first-aid equipment and donations.

Police in the federal state of Baden-Wurttemberg and Stuttgart prosecutors said in a joint statement issued Friday that the arrest took place Feb. 10, in compliance with an order issued by authorities in the United States.

U.S. investigators accuse the woman, aged 42, of providing support to al-Qaeda from mid-2013 until earlier this year, in collaboration with others.

The detainee has already appeared in court, where a provisional arrest warrant issued against her was upheld.
