The daughter of a Rockford woman accused of supporting extremist groups claims her mother has been falsely accused.

Sejla Ramic tells WREX-TV (http://bit.ly/1DVoaxR ) her mother, 42-year-old Jasminka Ramic, doesn't stand with terrorism and would never send money to a terrorist organization. She says whoever assumed her mother would do so is mistaken.

Jasminka Ramic is among six Bosnian immigrants accused of sending money and military equipment to the Islamic State group and Nusra Front, an al-Qaida-affiliated rebel group. She's charged with conspiring to provide and providing material support to groups designated by the U.S. as foreign terrorist organizations.

The television station reports the Ramics were in Germany and unaware of the indictment until a reporter contacted them. It's unclear if Jasminka Ramic has been arrested or has a lawyer yet.
