Spain arrests ‘six’ hit squad suspects

MADRID, Feb 21, (AP): Spanish police working with Britain’s National Crime Agency and Manchester police have arrested six suspected members of a British hit squad that had travelled to the Mediterranean Costa del Sol to allegedly kill the leader of a rival gang. According to a statement Sunday, the suspects are believed to belong to a drug-trafficking gang from Salford, west of Manchester, known as the “A Team” that allegedly planned to eliminate the leader of the rival “Anti-A team.” Following a tip-off from Britain, Spanish investigators tracked down the suspects to two houses in southern Marbella where they arrested five men and one woman.
