FOUR people have been arrested in Spain suspected of recruiting people, including women, for the terrorist group ISIS.

Two were arrested in the Spanish North African enclave of Melilla, with another two arrested in Catalonia. An Interior Ministry statement said that the two arrested in Melilla used the internet to disseminate information specially edited into Spanish about the jihadist group, and spread propaganda.

“In line with the strategy of the Daesh terrorist group, they focused on the recruitment of women who, after a process of indoctrination, would end up joining the terrorist group in conflict zones,” said the statement.
