MADRID (Reuters) -

Spanish police arrested a Moroccan man in Valencia on Tuesday whom they accused of recruiting for Islamic State and promoting the terror group on social media, the Interior Ministry said in a statement. The man had been communicating with a large number of IS terrorists, some of them well-known individuals operating in conflict zones in Syria and Iraq, the ministry said.

Including Tuesday’s arrest, Spain has detained 25 people so far this year with suspected links to Islamist militancy.
