Spanish police arrested a Moroccan suspected of belonging to an al-Qaida-linked group that allegedly recruited people to commit suicide attacks in Iraq, the Interior Ministry said Monday. The man, identified as Mbark El Jaafari, was arrested in the town of Reus in northeast Spain on a warrant issued by Moroccan authorities, the ministry said in a statement. His age and the date of his arrest were not given. The ministry said El Jaafari belonged to a group that worked for al-Qaida and an Algerian terrorist organization - the Salafist Group for Call and Combat -_ by recruiting suicide bombers in Morocco, Iraq and Algeria. Since May of last year the group that El Jaafari allegedly belonged to has sent 32 bombers to Iraq and also planned "operations" inside Morocco, the ministry said.
