4 suspected Islamic extremists accused of financing terror groups in Spain

Spanish police broke up a suspected Islamic militant cell Tuesday, arresting four people accused of fundraising for terrorist activities, the Interior Ministry said. Four men of Algerian origin were arrested, three in southern Huelva province and the other in the Basque area in the north, according to a statement. The cell had been under investigation since 2005, was linked directly to al-Qaida, and operated by selling counterfeit documents and clothing and sending small amounts from the proceeds to well-known members of Islamic terrorist organizations, the statement continued. The ministry also said there is no evidence the suspects were preparing an imminent attack.
