Fourteen people suspected of terrorist activity have been arrested in raids across Spain. They are accused of recruiting fighters for missions in Iraq, according to Spanish police, who say the arrests are part of an ongoing investigation. The raids took place in Malaga, Nerja, and Sevilla in the south, Lerida in the northeast and on the Balearic Islands.
