MADRID – The risk of attacks against Spanish interests abroad from Islamic terrorists is rising, a security services report published on Thursday found.

Hotels, tourist centres, companies and diplomatic offices are all at a higher risk, according to the report from the Spanish state security service, claimed the radio station Cadena Ser.

The station, which has seen a copy of the report, said most at risk were Spanish interests in Egypt, Jordan, Israel, Turkey, India and Thailand.

There is also an increased risk to Spanish troops in Afghanistan and Lebanon.

The most dangerous situation is in Lebanon, claims the report, as Spanish troops are stationed within range of Hizbollah guerrilla strongholds.

Also, in Afganistán, it is thought terrorist methods similar to those being employed in Iraq, could be used against Spanish troops.
