Spanish Regional Police Detain 2 near Barcelona for Suspected Terror Links

SANT PERE DE RIBES, Spain – Regional Spanish police have arrested two people near Barcelona suspected of glorifying the Islamic State terror organization, the country’s interior minister said on Monday.

The dawn raids conducted by Catalonia’s regional security, the Mossos d’Esquadra, unfolded at two properties in the seaside town of Sant Pere de Ribes, located some 44 kilometers (27 miles) south of Barcelona.

“Two detained for glorifying Daesh during a counter-terror operation in Barcelona,” said Spain’s interior minister, Juan Ignacio Zoido, on his official Twitter account, using an alternative acronym for the IS.

Regional police said the suspects had used social media outlets to glorify, justify and incite terror attacks.

The raids took place at around 4 am and were the result of a months-long investigation, police said.

A vehicle allegedly being used by the extremist cell was also seized by police.
