Spanish police arrested 16 people Monday on suspicion of recruiting volunteers to fight in Iraq and other countries. Twelve people were arrested in Barcelona and in two other towns in the northeastern region of Catalonia. Two suspects were arrested in the central town of Aranjuez, and one in the southern city of Malaga, an Interior Ministry statement said. The ministry announced later that one other suspect had been arrested in Barcelona. Fourteen of the 16 were Moroccan and two were from Algeria, according to the statement. The 16 are accused of spreading propaganda in favor of jihad, or holy war, and of sending volunteer fighters to groups operating in north Africa and countries in conflict such as Iraq, the statement said.
