A Singapore court has convicted four Bangladeshis of providing and raising money to fund terrorist acts in Bangladesh, local media reported.

They were part of a group of six who were charged on Friday under the country’s Terrorism (Suppression of Financing) Act.
The Straits Times reported that Rahman Mizanur, Miah Rubel, Md Jabath Kysar Haje Norul Islam Sowdagar and Sohel Hawlader Ismail Hawlader pleaded guilty in court on Tuesday.
The other two - Zzaman Daulat and Mamun Leakot Ali- have denied the charges. A pre-trial conference for them has been set for June 9, it said.
Citing court documents, Straits Times said that Rahman led the group and Mamun was his deputy. 
“Miah was in the group's financial council, while Jabath handled the group's media. Zzaman and Sohel were in the group's security and fighter councils respectively,” reads the report.
The six were among eight men arrested between late March and early last month.

Working in the marine and construction industries, they called themselves the Islamic State in Bangladesh (ISB).
