Spanish Police Arrest Four Suspected Terrorists; Moroccan Islam Radicals Planned to Attack Spain

Spanish police yesterday arrested four suspected Islamist extremists who were prepared to launch attacks in Spain, the AFP (Agence France-Presse) website reports today (January 25, 2015).

Officers detained two pairs of brothers -- Spaniards of Moroccan origin -- in the Spanish territory of Ceuta bordering Morocco, the interior ministry said in a statement.

It said they had "a very similar profile" to the killers in this month's Islamist attacks in France.

"They formed part of a jihadist cell fully prepared and willing to launch an attack in Spain," the ministry statement added.
