The Guardia Civil have arrested a Moroccan man suspected of spreading propaganda for the Islamic State armed group. The man, identified only by the initials A.B., was arrested on Wednesday in the northern town of Calahorra. The Interior Ministry said he helped promote the Islamic group by praising its attacks and those who travelled to fight for it.

It said he was linked to another Moroccan, Salim Aghmir, who was arrested in Pamplona last December. Police arrested two Moroccan-born imams on the island of Ibiza on Tuesday on similar suspicions.
