Report: Man solicits donations for ISIS at Harvard

  • A Kennedy School of Government spokesman said the man in question was not a threat to the community.

Funding for cancer, abused animals, and ISIS?

According to CBS Connecticut, a man in his late 20s or 30s pretended to be a Harvard student and solicited donations at the Kennedy School of Government on Tuesday for a charity connected to the Islamic State.

“The man did not appear to be a threat to the community,” Doug Gavel, Kennedy School of Government spokesman, said in a statement Friday.

Gavel sent an email to the Kennedy School community informing them of the solicitations.

The man hasn’t been seen since Tuesday, but Harvard University police are continuing investigations.
