Spanish police arrest 14 suspected Pakistani jihadists in several provinces


A suspected jihadist network based in Spain was smashed this Tuesday, November 7, after an operation initiated by the General Information Commissioner’s Office.

As confirmed to by police sources, a total of 14 individuals were arrested in several Spanish provinces. All of the detainees were of Pakistani origin and are said to have lived in Catalonia, Valencia, Guipúzcoa, Vitoria, Logroño and Lleida.

Those arrested will reportedly appear before a court tomorrow, Wednesday 8. In the absence of official information, it is believed that these individuals formed a network in which jihadist messages and a high degree of radicalisation were transmitted
