(TAP) - A Takfiri cell active in the governorate of Ariana was dismantled and four of its members were arrested, the Interior Ministry said in a press release Sunday.

The department specified that the individuals in question were planning to travel to Syria to join terrorist groups.

Aged between 23 and 32, the alleged members of the cell admitted that they adopt Takfiri thought and organised meetings to recruit youths.

The Public Prosecutor's Office ordered the four suspects to be taken into custody and prosecuted for suspicion of belonging to a terrorist organisation.

A research notice was also issued against another individual involved in the case, the same source said.
