Police have arrested eight people in different parts of Spain on suspicion of recruiting Muslims to fight for militant groups. Officers detained five near Valencia, two in Barcelona, and one in the Navarre region.

A Spanish news agency said they were suspected of having links to an al-Qaeda group. The report said they were not connected to 11 alleged Islamist militants charged last week with offences related to suicide bomb plots in Barcelona and Germany.
