These are the images of the time of the arrest in Madrid of one of the two alleged jihadists arrested early this morning.

The two men, aged 43 and 22, are alleged to have strong links to a cell that recruited, radicalized and trained would-be terrorists for suicide attacks, were arrested on Monday evening just hours before the Manchester Arena attack which has so far claimed 22 lives and left more than 50 injured.

Police said the two men, both Moroccans, are suspected of being “cyber soldiers” involved in more than one hundred internet sites aimed at training Isis members to carry out attacks, including video tutorials on how to make homemade explosions.

In a statement, the National Police said the pair had “become dangerously radicalized” after exposure to “websites and videos designed to train ‘inghimasi’ – combatants with the knowledge and skills needed to launch attacks in Europe following the modus operandi already seen in attacks in the UK, Germany, Belgium and France.”

Police say the two suspects spent most of their time on their computers at home, rarely went out of the house or mixed socially, but were in constant contact with each other.
