“The statement said the two minors had left school in Spain to study the Quran in Morocco.” Now wait a minute. They studied Qur’an and then wanted to join the Islamic State?

“Spain police arrest family, say children were to join jihad,” AP, March 31, 2015:
MADRID – The Interior Ministry says police have arrested four members of a family, including two minors who were allegedly about to travel to Syria to become jihadi fighters.
A ministry statement said a couple and two boys, both aged under 16, were arrested in the northeastern city of Badalona, near Barcelona.
The boys were suspected of planning to travel Tuesday to Syria, via Morocco and Turkey.
The ministry said authorities believe another son of the couple joined the Islamic State group in Syria and died last year.
