SCHILLER PARK, Ill. -- A woman from Schiller Park is charged with providing financial support for terrorist groups.

Mediha Salkiecevic was arrested last week. She is one of five people charged with funneling money to ISIS and Al-Qaeda in Iraq.

Salkiecevic and her co-defendants are all Bosnian immigrants.

Prosecutors say the group raised cash, and bought and shipped military equipment from surplus stores in Missouri.

Salkiecevic is expected to be extradited to St. Louis to face the charges; she faces a court appearance this morning.

If convicted on all counts, she could face 30 years in prison.
