France Urges EU To Act Faster Against Funding

France urged its European Union partners on Tuesday … nearly a month after the Paris attacks … to speed up efforts to cut off funds to extremists groups. “We have to go faster, but also further, stronger,” said French Finance Minister Michel Sapin after talks with his EU counterparts in Brussels.

Based in part on a list of measures suggested by France, the ministers discussed ways to better track financial transfers, control prepaid bank cards, freeze assets and limit movements of cash and precious metals. No firm decisions were made.
