COPENHAGEN, Denmark, Dec. 7 (UPI) -- Police in Denmark have charged an Islamic organization and two members with supporting terrorism.

The Ministry of Justice announced the charges Wednesday, alleging al-Aqsa in Denmark raised money for terrorists.

Two members allegedly transferred the money to organizations connected with the militant Islamic group Hamas, the Copenhagen Post reports.

Danish investigators began looking into al-Aqsa in 2002.
