MADRID - Germany has handed over to Spain a Moroccan man accused of being an Islamic State contact in Europe and of planning attacks in Spain, the Spanish government said on Thursday.
Ayoub Moutchou, 21, was arrested by German investigators in Stuttgart on August 4 and handed over to Spanish police on the basis of a European Arrest Warrant issued by a Spanish court, an Interior Ministry statement said.
"Moutchou had begun the necessary contacts, in the name of Islamic State, to carry out attacks in Spain in reprisal for the recent arrests of Jihadis," it said after Spanish police brought him back from Germany.
