Suicide Attack

Thousands of Guns Bound for Terrorist Groups Seized in Spain

When a gunman killed four people at a Jewish museum in Brussels in 2014, police in Spain launched an effort to reduce the number of illegal firearms circulating in Europe. What they found was a arsenal large enough to supply an army — and all ready to be sold to terrorist groups and gangs. Spanish police announced Tuesday they had recovered around 10,000 assault rifles, pistols, machine guns, and revolvers, as well as 400 shells and grenades, in raids in the north of the country.
