Qatar financing IS jihadists: German minister
(08-20 16:32)

Germany's development aid minister, Gerd Mueller, on Wednesday accused Qatar of financing the jihadist group Islamic State (IS) operating in Syria and Iraq.
"A story like this always has a history,'' he said in an interview with public broadcaster ZDF. "Who is financing these troops? Hint: Qatar."
Vice Chancellor and Economy Minister Sigmar Gabriel this week urged a "debate" about who has been and is financing the IS, but without naming any countries. --AFP
