Madrid: The Spanish security forces broke up an al Qaeda linked network and arrested eight suspects in raids early Friday morning in Ceuta, a Spanish enclave in north Africa, the government said.

"We have broken up a network responsible for sending combatants to al Qaeda linked terrorist groups operating in Syria," the Interior Ministry said in a statement.

Those arrested are suspected of funding, indoctrinating and facilitating travel for those who pledge to fight.

The statement also added that some of them had participated in suicide attacks, the Ministry said.
