ISIS ready to attack Canary Islands

This is breaking and not confirmed. It would be good for a Spanish person to scan their media to pick up some better details.

Lets hope this one has been fixed.

Here is one article that Google Translate won't help with.

Re: ISIS ready to attack Canary Islands

A quick google search finds a Fox News Story published on December 8 about a man arrested in Catalonia and a woman in Fuerteventura whom police suspect of forming a cell with the aim of recruiting young Spaniards.

I'm more worried about the headaches you can contract in the Canary Islands. Last time I was in Santa Cruz, I had a whacking head ache the morning following an evening which featured a huge bowl of caldo, many glasses of wine, followed by many glasses of beer, and it seems some brandy at some point.

Screw ISIS and all they stand for. They won't stop me from enjoying this great world.
