MADRID - Six people have been arrested in Spain, Britain and Germany accused of links to the Islamist militant group Islamic State, and the indoctrination and radicalization of potential members, the Spanish interior ministry said on Wednesday.
The arrests, organized by Spanish police in conjunction with police in Germany and Britain, detained four people in Palma de Mallorca, one in Britain and one in Germany, the ministry said.
The police forces from the different countries co-operated using European Union agencies set up to help share information related to fighting crime within member states - Europol, Eurojust and Sirene, the ministry said.
Those arrested devised and circulated videos with violent content and organized secret weekly meetings to recruit young people to travel to conflict zones to fight.
