Sa­gunto Ji­hadist ar­rested

Costa Levante News - - NEWS -

By Joe Wick­man A 47-YEAR-OLD Moroc­can man was ar­rested in Sa­gunto on Mon­day for his ties to ter­ror­ist groups.

He is charged with in­doc­tri­nat­ing peo­ple in the area and get­ting them to join Daesh.

He was re­spon­si­ble, most no­tably, for turn­ing a 26-yearold man who, af­ter be­ing in touch with the ar­rested crim­i­nal, trav­elled to Irak and per­formed a sui­cide at­tack which killed 33 peo­ple just over a month af­ter.

Gov­ern­ment spokes­peo­ple de­scribe him as a 'strong in­sti­ga­tor who is able to cre­ate a breed­ing ground to en­sure the idea of com­mit­ting ter­ror­ist at­tacks would so­lid­ify in the minds of new faith­fuls.'

Cit­i­zens are en­cour­aged to report pos­si­ble cases of rad­i­cal­i­sa­tion through the web­site www.stop-rad­i­cal­is­, the mo­bile phone app Alert­cops or by call­ing 900 822 066.
