MUNICH, GERMANY - Authorities in southern Germany Wednesday said six Iraqis will be deported on suspicion of links to the outlawed Ansar al Islam Kurdish guerrilla group.

All six face criminal charges of raising money and serving as couriers for the banned extremist group, said Bavarian Interior Minister Guenther Beckstein.

Ansar al-Sunna has claimed responsibility for decapitating 12 Nepalese workers in Iraq and bombing a United States military mess tent in Mosul that killed 22 people.

The group allegedly planned to assassinate Iraqi Prime Minister Ijad Allawi in Berlin last December.

The al Qaeda-linked group has been waging guerrilla and terrorist attacks in Iraq since the U.S.-led invasion in 2003 that toppled Saddam Hussein.
