SINGAPORE (Reuters) - A Singapore court on Friday charged six Bangladeshi men, who were detained last month for planning attacks in their home country, for involvement in terrorism financing activities.

The six were among eight Bangladeshi men who were detained in April under Singapore's colonial-era Internal Security Act, which allows suspects to be held for lengthy periods without trial.
