Spanish authorities say at least 14 suspected members of a cell that recruited jihadi fighters for the Islamic State group in Iraq and Syria have been arrested in a joint operation in Spain and Morocco.

A Spanish Interior Ministry statement said the arrests took place Tuesday in the central Spanish town of San Martin de la Vega and in five Moroccan cities, including Casablanca and Fez.

No more details were immediately available.

Spain and Morocco have arrested dozens of suspected jihadi militants and recruiters in recent years.
