G20 to be pressed on terror funding

Prime Minister Theresa May is expected to tell a meeting of the G20 that there is no excuses for ‘safe spaces’ for terrorist financing.

As the world leaders prepare to meet in Germany, May said that the terrorist threat was ‘evolving’ and that opposition must take ‘measures against permissive environments for terrorist financing’. Much of this, she will say, is to track small sums of money that is currently financing lone wolf attacks - like this recently witnessed in London and Manchester.

The G20 meeting of world leaders is taking place in Hamburg, where police and protesters have been reportedly clashing, with the police use of water canons to disperse groups of protesters viewed on media outlets ahead of the meeting. Up to 100,000 protesters are expected in the German city during the summit.
