    (ANSAmed) - ROME, NOVEMBER 10 - "Financing of Isis comes primarily from countries in the Middle East," Sheikh Khalid bin Ahmed Al Khalifa, Bahrein's Foreign Minister said an international conference for the fight against terrorism in Manama, Baharain.

    In an article in Middle East Online, the minister is cited as recommending transparency by publicly naming those contributing to financing and asked for charities to be protected from abuse at the hands of militant groups and their supporters.

    The Gulf States have already initiated legal and administrative proceedings against persons and organizations that fund Islamic militants, in particular those fighting in Iraq and Syria. (ANSAmed).
