Spanish and Moroccan authorities have arrested six jihadists preparing for "large-scale attacks," the Spanish interior ministry said. In Morocco, Spanish police and security forces have "smashed a jihadist terrorist cell made up of six people," the interior ministry said in a statement.
It is also indicated that five of the jihadists are arrested in Morocco and one in Melilla, a Spanish enclave in North Africa. The head of the terrorist cell was a 39-year-old Spaniard.
