'Jihad recruiters' held in Spain

BBC News 

Spanish police have arrested 14 suspected Islamist militants, mostly in the north-eastern region of Catalonia. The suspects were allegedly involved in recruiting jihadi volunteers for training in Afghanistan and Iraq.  

Police in Catalonia detained 11 in Barcelona and other towns. The others were arrested in Madrid and Malaga.  

The interior ministry believes the majority of those arrested are Moroccan nationals. Police have confiscated a considerable amount of computer data.  

Twenty-nine suspected Islamists - most of them Moroccans - are currently on trial for the deadly Madrid train bombings in 2004 which killed 191 people and injured more than 1,700.
