Italian police said on Thursday that all the detainees are Moroccan. The operation, coordinated by the district attorney of Milan and Italy's national anti-mafia and anti-terrorism prosecutor, was carried out in several locations in Lombardy and Piedmont.

Italy’s anti-terrorist force found documents typing the suspects to a foreign militant network fighting for the IS.
