Mexican and U.S. agents are investigating a group in Mexico that they believe is funding Hezbollah. According to El Universal, Mexico started the investigation three months ago on a request from the U.S., which is helping in the probe.
The alleged cell is suspected of financing Hezbollah rather than planning attacks itself, according to Milenio. The attorney general's office in Mexico has compiled a list of people and companies it believes have provided funds to support Hezbollah, Milenio said, but no names were given.
Mexico is home to a large Lebanese community including prominent business people such as telecommunications tycoon Carlos Slim, the world's third richest man.
