isisPOLICE in Spain have arrested two men accused supporting Islamist militants and potentially planning an attack on European soil.

The Interior Ministry said the two Moroccan men had travelled to Turkey’s border with Syria to meet members of the sick group ISIS.

They were hoping to be trained before launching an attack in Europe, the ministry said.

One of the men, from Murcia, was arrested by Turkish police before he could cross the border.

He was returned to Spain where, once released, he continued in his efforts to join the militant group.

The second man, from further north Valladolid, is accused of aiding the first in his attempts to reach Syria, and of training him once he returned to Spain.
