TWO propagandists considered “key figures in the Islamic State network” have been arrested by Spanish police.
The suspects were apprehended during raids on two separate coastal cities in northern Spain, Gijon and Asturias.
Both men are of Moroccan origin, one with Spanish nationalist and the other a legal resident.
“They were intensively active on the internet, praising the group’s activities and posting videos of its attacks. They worked to recruit militants and encouraged attacks to be carried out,” read a statement from the National Police.
Spain has been at the forefront of operations leading to the capture of Daesh-linked radicals with dozens of important arrests this year alone.
