Ten suspected Isis recruiters held after raids in Spain and Morocco

Police have arrested 10 people in Spain and Morocco for allegedly recruiting and indoctrinating fighters for the Islamic State (Isis) group, the Spanish interior ministry announced on Sunday.

The suspects were part of a “network of recruitment, indoctrination and sending foreign fighters to fight for Daesh (Isis) in the regions of Syria and Iraq under its control,” the ministry said in a statement.

The statement said arrests “in the last few hours” were part of a joint operation between the two countries in the Spanish cities of Toledo, Badalona, Xeraco, and in Casablanca, Morocco.

Spain and Morocco joined forces on August 25 in another operation that saw 14 other alleged recruiters arrested.
