Faical Errai suspected pro-jihad arrested in Spain
Spanish police arrested a Moroccan man in the southeast of the country on suspicion of having links to Islamic terror groups and of recruiting jihad fighters, officials said Sunday. The Interior Ministry said in a statement that 26-year-old Faical Errai was arrested Friday in the small town of Poble Nou de Benitachell in the coastal province of Alicante.

Town mayor Maria Josefa Ronda said Errai had been a registered local resident for seven years and had "integrated very well into the local community."

Ronda said Errai had been a Civil Protection volunteer and "whenever a local service had to be done he was always favourably disposed to do it."

The ministry said Errai is suspected of being responsible for a pro-jihad website, of recruiting fighters for insurgency in Afghanistan, Chechnya and Pakistan, and of raising money.

It said the arrest followed a high-tech investigation and collaboration with police forces in the United States, Belgium, France, Jordan and Morocco.

Police searched three properties and seized computer and electronic information storage equipment, the ministry said.
