Catalan teachers told how to spot jihadis in the classroom
by Fiona Govan
Anti-terrorism authorities in Catalonia are preparing guidelines to advise teachers in the northeastern region on how to identify potential jihadists in the classroom.
Authorities are keen to learn lessons from recent terror attacks in Paris and Belgium and ensure a system is in place to pick up on students who may have been radicalized and are planning attacks.
Catalonia's regional government is finalizing plans developed by specialist anti-terrorist unit of the Mossos d'Esquadra to train teachers to keep watch for Islamic extremism, said Jordi Jané, the head of Catalonia's regional interior ministry.
