MADRID -  (AFP) - Six people suspected of recruiting Islamic militants to send to Iraq were arrested by Spanish police on Wednesday, the interior ministry said.

Paramilitary police were searching the homes of the suspects in the northern Burgos region, it said.

The cell is alleged to have operated through Internet chat roms and discussion groups.

"The dismantled group was organising clandestine meetings, was gathering funds for imprisoned terrorists (and) was justifying terrorism," the ministry said.
