Spain accuses man of terrorism for recruiting fighters for the Iraqi insurgency

Spain has brought preliminary terrorism charges against one of the men it apprehended last week on suspicion of recruiting fighters for the Iraqi insurgency.

On Monday, a Spanish court announced the charges against Omar Nakcha, a 23-year-old Moroccan who was apprehended last week, the Associated Press reported. The Spanish government accuses him of leading one of two major terror cells in Spain that recruits and raises money to aid the Iraqi insurgency. Last week, Spanish authorities targeted the two cells in a major raid that netted 21 suspects.
