Spanish police have arrested a Canadian man suspected of helping finance Islamist terrorist activities, authorities said on Monday. The 61-year-old man, identified as Brian David Anderson, is wanted by US authorities for fraud and is believed to have helped finance a training camp in Afghanistan, the Interior Ministry said in a statement. He was arrested in a Madrid hotel thanks to joint collaboration with the FBI, the ministry said.
