(MADRID 17:30) Police officers detained three Morrocan citizens suspected of having ties to the self-proclaimed Islamic State (IS; formerly ISIL/ISIS) in Madrid.

The suspects were arrested during the raid near a house close to Atocha train station where all of the suspects were residing.

According to officials at the Interior Ministry, the detainees were planning a ‘suicide attack’. During the raid in the apartment, the police officers discovered and seized a large number of Islamic State training materials.
