MOLLET DEL VALLES, Spain, Dec. 22 (UPI) -- Spanish authorities have arrested three Moroccans suspected of links with international Islamic terrorism, the BBC reported Wednesday.

Officials said the three had started negotiations to get explosives from a central European country.

More than 120 suspected Islamic extremists have been arrested in Spain since the March 11 train bombings in Madrid that killed 191 people.

Hasan Haski, 41, was charged with planning the attacks and accused of 1,000 counts of attempted murder and membership of an armed group. The two other men arrested were not identified.

Haski was remanded without bail after the hearing at Spain's National Court.
