3 arrests reported as Spanish police crack down on extremism

ALMERÍA, Spain (AP) — Spanish police have arrested at least three people in a southern city for suspected links to religious extremist groups that allegedly conducted violent actions. Three members of the National Police confirmed that the operation was aimed at arresting suspected jihadists but declined to share more details because further arrests could still be conducted. Spain’s Interior Ministry says police have arrested nearly 400 people connected to extremist religious groups since 2012.
