A couple in Spain have been arrested over links with dreaded terror group, ISIS.
The pair, a Moroccan man and a Spanish woman were both arrested in Algeciras, a Spanish port based in the southern part of the country.
According to Spanish Interior Ministry, the couple with links to ISIS were arrested while trying to leave for Morocco with their young son.
A statement from the ministry revealed that the couple supported and recruited Islamic State fighters, including individuals that had carried out suicide bomb attacks in Syria.
The statement further revealed that the man’s brother had recently died in a suicide bomb attack and that was why the couple were traveling to Morocco in a hurry, the ministry said without giving further details.
Spanish authorities are searching the couple’s house in Granada and the investigation remains open while their son has been put in care, it revealed.
