Spanish Police Disrupt Criminal Organization That Financed al-Qaeda
HS Today

On June 18, the Spanish National Police disrupted a criminal organization which was financing Al Qaeda terrorist militias. The complex operation was carried out in the Spanish cities of Madrid, Valencia and Toledo. Ten individuals were arrested, and 14 house and premises searches were carried out, involving more than 350 police officers. Europol supported the Spanish authorities with three experts from the European Counter Terrorism Centre and two experts equipped with mobile offices and Universal Forensic Extraction Devices to support the investigations on-the-spot. Information gathered during the operation was analyzed and exchanged in real time and immediately cross-matched against Europol’s databases.
