BBC Minute: On jihadism in Spain

BBC Minute looks at the security situation in Spain, after terror attacks in Barcelona and nearby Cambrils. BBC Security Correspondent Frank Gardner says Spain’s Moroccan community is a fertile breeding ground for jihadist groups looking to recruit young people, and social marginalisation makes some more vulnerable to radicalisation.
