Madrid:Spanish police on Friday arrested 13 people with suspected of links to Islamic extremist movements and those who carried out the Madrid train bombings last year, the interior ministry announced.
The ministry said four of those arrested had close ties to Youssef Belhadj, the man believed to be the Al-Qaeda extremist network’s spokesman in Europe who was extradited Friday from Belgium to Spain on suspicion of involvement in the March 2004 attacks.
The ministry added that six of those detained in the operation involving around 100 police officers were Moroccans, four Syrians, one an Egyptian, another a Palestinian and one an Algerian.(afp)
