Spain: four jihadists detained for fundraising for Al-Qaeda

with one comment

The detained were Algerian-born and were linked to terrorists in United Kingdom. British agents have been cooperating with Spanish counterterrorism services in the development of this operation, named “Emir”. Sicne 2005, the Spanish Civil Guard was following the steps of this cell who was sending funds for terrorist organizations linked to Al Qaeda since 2005 in Iran, Pakistan, Afghanistan or Algeria. The arrested (in Huelva, Lepe, Azcoitia and Isla Antilla) obtained the funding by selling different falsified products, among all documents and wearing outfits. They used to send it in small amounts, always under 2,400€.

After the arrests, the Civil Guard has entered their apartments. In one of them, which belonged to the mother-in-law of one of the arrested, they have confiscated several computers and two suitcases. According to Spanish Minister of Interior, they were not preparing any terrorist attacks in Spain. (Spain has troops in Afghanistan, just in case someone could have forgotten).
