The UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said the world needed to be one step ahead of the militants. Just as terrorist groups are innovating and diversifying, the international community must stay ahead of the curve to combat money laundering and financing of terrorism. Doing so will not be easy.

The pair were said to have watched radical Islamist videos together and to have plotted in 2011 and 2012 to carry out terrorist attacks in California. Enrique Marquez, who's 24 years old, is also alleged to have purchased two of the high-powered rifles used in the San Bernadino shooting and to have committed immigration fraud. He was arrested today by the FBI and faces three charges. European leaders have agreed at a summit in Brussels that the Union's frontier guard force needs to be strengthened.
