Spain: Jihadi female recruiting network broken up

MADRID — Spanish authorities on Tuesday announced the breakup of a ring dedicated to recruiting young women to join the Islamic State

extremist group, part of a push by European nations to stop citizens from traveling to Syria and Iraq, to reduce the risk of them returning home to carry out terror attacks.

Two suspected recruiters were arrested in the Spanish north African enclave of Melilla and two suspects accused of spreading IS propaganda online were detained in the northeastern cities of Barcelona and Girona, the Interior Ministry said in a statement. The four were not identified but the ministry said the suspects arrested in Melilla “were dedicated to the recruitment of women who, after a process of indoctrination, would end up integrated into this terror group.”
