“Islamic ‘terrorist’ linked to 9/11 arrested in Bilbao,” from Expatica, :
BILBAO “” Spanish police have arrested an alleged Islamic terrorist with links to al-Qaeda.
Algerian Tahar Izerouali was wanted by police as a supposed member of terrorist organisation Ansar al Islam, which has been linked to al-Qaeda.
The terrorist cell allegedly supplies false documents and cash to other Islamic extremists across Europe.
Before his arrest, Tahar Izerouali, 35, was leading a normal life in Bilbao, despite being named in an international arrest warrant.
He lived in Santutxu, in Bilbao, and worked as a painter.
Why, he was just an ordinary guy, neighbors said. Wouldn’t hurt a fly. Great painter, too. This must be some kind of witchhunt.
