MADRID — Spain's Interior Ministry says police have arrested two suspected members of al-Qaida's North African branch who have a similar profile to the suspects in the recent attacks in Boston.

A statement Tuesday said one Algerian was arrested in the northeastern city of Zaragoza while a Moroccan was arrested in the southeastern city of Murcia.

The ministry said the two were suspected members of a cell of al-Qaida in the Islamic Maghreb, a branch of al-Qaida that operates in northwest Africa.

The ministry gave no immediate details as to how their profile was similar to those suspected of carrying out two bomb attacks during the Boston Marathon last week.
