Spain rounds up 8 Moroccans in anti-terror raids

The Spanish police Tuesday arrested eight people and raided 12 properties in Barcelona, in an operation against suspected Islamist terrorists, some of which were linked to the Belgian airport-metro suicide bombings last March which left 31 dead. Spain cooperated with Belgian police in the operation. The detained were all Moroccans aged between 21 and 39. Spanish police have been investigating an Islamist cell with links to organized crime in the Barcelona area for eight months.
