Teenager twins and their parents arrested for Jihadist connections

The judge of the Audiencia Nacional José Luis Castro has ordered the placement of the twin brothers (16 years old) in a juvenile detention facility for a period of six months after they have been arrested on Tuesday in Badalona (Barcelona). They are accused of belonging to a terrorist ‘jihadist’ organization, legal sources reported. Their mother and father were also sent to prison for “facilitating the migration process” of the minors to Syria in order to participate in the combat as ‘mujahideen’.The four arrested individuals are Moroccan citizens and they were being investigated for their process of “radicalization”. According to these sources, the children were scheduled to leave on Tuesday from Badalona to Syria, and had already contacted jihadist network members to organize their trip through Turkey. The children had left school in Badalona for Koranic education at a madrassa in Tetouan (Morocco), and, according to the Ministry Interior, they “were engaged in the process of radicalization”.
