Three of those detained hail from Morocco and the fourth is a Spanish national. Authorities say it is part of an ongoing operation.

They allegedly targeted hundreds of people via instant messaging and other social media before making direct contact with smaller groups.

Spain has detained 23 people so far this year with presumed links to Islamist militancy.
