Spain: Moroccan Disrupts Wedding Shouting Allahu Akbar
Rabat - Spain’s national police on Saturday detained a young Moroccan who interrupted a wedding ceremony in Valladolid, north Spain, while shouting “God is greatest”.

Born in Tetouan, and now a resident of Parla in Madrid, the man was investigated by police in 2004 following terrorist attacks in the city on March 11, 2004.
