Swedish police have detained four suspects on suspicion of having used six companies to fund the Islamic State in Syria.

Police sources told the Dagens Nyheter daily that a “large raid” took place in Stockholm as part of a probe into money laundering and undeclared work.

Swedish authorities estimate that up to 10 million Swedish kronor ($1.19 million, 1.05 million euros) are sent to Jihadist groups each year.

In January, the Swedish intelligence service reported that 130 Swedes had joined jihadist groups in Iraq and Syria since 2012.
