Spain holds 2 suspected of al Qaeda links

Spanish police arrested two suspected al Qaeda terrorists on Tuesday but said they had no indication of an imminent attack.

The Interior Ministry identified the suspects as Nou Mediouni, of "Algerian origin," who was arrested in the north-central city of Zaragoza, and Hassan El Jaaouani, of "Moroccan origin," and arrested in the southeastern city of Murcia.

Spanish police worked with their counterparts in France and Morocco to carry out the latest arrests, the Interior Ministry statement said.

    " no indication of an imminent attack'. Seems countries are now learning from our own sting ops.

    Let them immigrate to the US. "Diversity is strength." It must be true; I heard it repeatedly in my public education curricula, as I sat next to newly immigrated MS 13 and Chechnyans. Can I give you section 8 housing and food stamps with those citizenship papers?
