2 Moroccans linked to ISIS arrested by Spanish police

Spanish Interior Ministry informs that two Moroccans suspected to have links with Islamic State have been arrested with police claiming that one of the suspects played an important role in spreading propaganda for the militant group.

Revealing more about one of the suspects reported to have been spreading propaganda for the militant group, the ministry said the man – described as a “dangerous solitary actor” living in the outskirts of the capital Madrid – had been radicalised through internet websites aimed at encouraging individuals to attack civil populations.

The ministry further revealed that the man was a “key element” of Islamic State’s decentralised propaganda machine to recruit others to join the group and also found he had closely followed websites dedicated to Islamist militant suicide attacks and Islamic State activity over a long period of time.

The second suspect who had tried to join forces with ISIS fighters by going to Turkey where he was captured by police and sent back to Spain was nabbed in the city of Irun close to the French border.
