Internet Islamist Group Arrested in Spain

The Spanish Civil Guard has arrested 6 suspected Islamists for use of the Internet to promote terrorist activities based in a rural area of Northwest Spain. This appears to be part of a much larger investigation involving Swiss, Danish and US authorities as well.
"The Civil Guard said the arrests marked the first time Spanish authorities have broken up a network principally dedicated to promoting jihad on the internet. The group was using private chat rooms and forums, disseminating Islamist propaganda on the Web and collecting money for imprisoned Islamists, officials said."
