Alleged al-Qaeda-linked Islamists arrested

Spanish police broke up a cell of suspected Islamic militants, and arrested four people accused of fundraising for terrorist activities. The men, all of Algerian origin, were arrested in the southern province of Huelva and the Basque region in the north. Authorities said that the cell had been under investigation since 2005, and was directly linked to Al Qaeda. However, the interior ministry said that there is no evidence that the suspects were preparing for an imminent attack.
