The pair are believed to be part of a Europe-wide recruitment group.

GUARDIA CIVIL have detained two Moroccan men over their suspected links to the so-called Islamic State (ISIS).

The 25-year-old and 27-year-old men are accused of recruiting, indoctrinating and sending radicals to jihadi groups in conflict zones, according to the Interior Ministry.

Police believe the pair are part of a Europe-wide recruitment group that use drug trafficking to finance ISIS operations.

Evidence of multiple ‘secured conversations’ over the web with people abroad, as well as numerous telephones were found at their homes in Badalona.

Investigators told news outlets “the detained may have already recruited people who were planning on going to conflict zones to join terrorist groups which operate there.”
