The week's news at a glance.

Madrid

Spanish police this week arrested 11 people on suspicion of planning terrorism, two of them brothers of a Guantánamo Bay detainee. Hamed Abderrahaman Ahmed, a Spanish citizen from Ceuta, a Spanish territory inside Morocco, spent more than two years in U.S. detention in Cuba. A Spanish court ruled that he was not a member of al Qaida and had been wrongfully detained. The alleged plotters, including Ahmed's brothers, were captured in Ceuta, which has become a hub of Islamic radicalism.
