#AceBreakingNews – BRITAIN – September 26 – British police arrested on Friday two men as part of an operation into Islamist-related militancy, Reuters said.
The two men were arrested on the M6 motorway in England by counter-terrorism officers, bringing the total number of people detained in the operation to 11 over two days.
Spain’s Interior Ministry said on Friday that Spanish and Moroccan police have arrested nine people suspected of belonging to a militant cell linked to the Islamic State (IS) group.
In Malaysia, police have detained three Muslim men suspected of wanting to go to Syria to join the IS.
#AceWorldNews says Moroccan authorities deployed riot police and closed streets around the Justice Ministry in the capital of Rabat, preventing a banned sit-in by hundreds of judges. The judges were to hold a demonstration calling for independence for the judiciary.
“We want organic laws that guarantee the independence of the judiciary from executive and legislative powers and from social and political lobbies,” president of the Judges’ Club, Yassine Mkhelli, told Reuters. Morocco’s Interior Ministry banned the protest on Friday.
The country’s justice system has been criticized for being under the control of the powerful monarchy since Morocco’s independence in 1956.
