Spain: Moroccan terrorist who planned to bomb El Clásico football match arrested

Allah's Willing Executioners

Spanish police have arrested a Moroccan jihadist who had planned to use unmanned aerial drone to bomb the El Clásico football match in Barcelona. 

The 34-year-old “lone wolf” terrorist had originally planned to target a Barcelona-Real Madrid match at the Camp Nou with a drone carrying explosives. However, because the football game had been cancelled due to coronavirus restrictions, the Moroccan was forced to scrap his grand plans and settle for a more traditional knife attack on bystanders instead, El Periodicoreports.

The suspect, whose name has not been released by authorities, has lived in Spain for twelve years. According to the authorities, he had first got into touch with ISIS sometime in 2015. However, it wasn’t until COVID-19 had caused him to lose his job as a waiter on Barcelona’s seafront that he took the final step and swore allegiance to the terrorist organization.
