Interesting Article: "8 held in Spain on suspicion of recruiting Syria fighters" by The Hindu, Spain published Friday, June 21, 2013.

An interesting article mentioned that Spanish police on Friday detained eight people in the enclave of Ceuta on suspicion of sending jihadist fighters to Syria, the Interior Ministry said. The network based in Ceuta and Morocco allegedly recruited potential fighters, indoctrinated them and organized their trip via Turkey to Syria, according to the Ministry and the daily El Pais. The Ministry said the network was believed to have sent dozens of fighters to Syria, where some of them may have undergone military training or even participated in suicide attacks.  The network may have sent fighters to other countries as well, El Pais reported. Most of the detainees were Spanish nationals. Police searched several locations. The Spanish enclave of Ceuta, which is claimed by Morocco, has a population of around 80,000. Nearly half of them are Muslims. Syria’s 27-month-old conflict is believed to have drawn hundreds of foreign fighters.
