Reports: Mexico, U.S. probing group over alleged Hezbollah funding
MEXICO CITY - Mexican and U.S. agents are investigating a group in Mexico that they believe is funding the Lebanese-based Hezbollah guerrilla group, two newspapers reported
Thursday.

Mexico started the investigation three months ago on a request from the United States, which is helping in the probe, the daily El Universal said.

The alleged cell is suspected of financing Hezbollah rather than planning attacks itself, according to the Milenio newspaper.

The attorney general's office in Mexico has compiled a list of people and companies it believes have provided funds to the Iranian-backed group, the Milenio said, but no names were given.
