Spain has detained four propagandists for Islamic State in Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS), including two suspects who allegedly targeted young women for recruitment campaigns.
Police arrested two suspects in the city of Melilla, a Spanish enclave along the northern coast of Morocco, and two other suspects in the cities of Barcelona and Girona, the New York Times reports.
The detainees in north Africa stand accused of running an online campaign “dedicated to the recruitment of women,” according to Spain’s interior ministry, and held viewing parties of ISIS propaganda at several residences.
The detainees on the Spanish mainland allegedly spread ISIS propaganda through social media. One detainee had accumulated more than 1,000 followers on Facebook, according to authorities.
