Prosecutors brought formal charges on Friday against three Germans accused of sending money and camera equipment to help the jihadist group Islamic State make propaganda videos.

The accused were identified only as Karolina M., 25, who has been in pre-trial detention since March, as well as Jennifer Vincenza M. and Ahmed-Sadiq M., both 22, who have not been detained.

Karolina M., a German-Polish dual citizen, is married under Islamic law to an IS militant in Syria, prosecutors said.

"For the production of IS propaganda videos she sent him, through middlemen, cameras and accessories worth 1,100 euros ($1,400) in October 2013," they said.

"Shortly after, she travelled to Syria and handed the IS member three more cameras and more than 5,000 euros in cash."

The prosecutors said she returned to Germany and later sent him another 6,000 euros in six tranches, including more than 2,000 euros that the other two defendants had collected.

The three are charged with supporting a foreign terrorist organisation.
