6 suspected jihadist recruiters arrested in Spain

PanARMENIAN.Net - Spain's Interior Ministry said police have arrested six members of a group that allegedly recruited jihadist militants to fight in Libya and Mali, according to the Associated Press.

A statement said the arrests took place early Friday, May 30 in Spain's north African enclave city of Melilla.

The detained include one person who is suspected to have trained in a camp in Mali run by the al-Qaida-affiliated Movement for Oneness and Jihad in West Africa, or MUJAO.

Spain has arrested several dozen suspected jihadist militants in Melilla and its other north African enclave city of Ceuta in recent years. The cities are located on the Mediterranean coast and surrounded by Morocco.
