Spanish police have arrested three men on suspicion of having links with al-Qaida, authorities said Tuesday. Mohamed Laksir, 23, Mohamed Akazim, 32, and Moulay Lahoucine Miftah Idrissi, 27, were detained in the northeastern port city of Barcelona on suspicion of belonging to and recruiting volunteers for a terror organization, the Interior Ministry said. Recruits would have been sent for training in terror activities in Africa's dry Sahel region, south of the Sahara Desert, the ministry said. The two suspects are believed to have belonged to a cell which also promoted radical Islam, the statement said.
