Fourteen people arrested in Spain on Saturday may have been planning a "terrorist action" in Barcelona, Interior Minister Alfredo Perez Rubalcaba said, adding that the country was on high security alert. The arrests, in Barcelona, were triggered by information from several unspecified European intelligence agencies, and there was evidence the suspects - 12 Pakistani nationals and two people from India - could have been planning "a terrorist action" in the northern city, he said. The intelligence supplied indicated plans were afoot for a violent act in Barcelona, added Rubalcaba.
