Thai police hold 15 Pakistanis, probe possible terror link

More Terrorist ties to Pakistan.

Maybe Pakistan needs more money to stop this trend ?
BANGKOK: Police in Thailand said Wednesday they had arrested 15 Pakistani nationals involved in suspicious fundraising activity and were investigating possible links to a terrorist organisation.

A bank in the southern province of Yala alerted authorities after one of the suspects tried to transfer money to a person in Pakistan on a blacklist “related to a terrorist group”, said Police Colonel Piyawat Chalermsri.

The detainees, who have been charged with working illegally, said they came to Thailand in September to raise funds to help flood victims in Pakistan.

“We haven't found any link or evidence related to terrorism yet but as this area is very sensitive we will investigate further,” said Piyawat.
