At least 60 suspected members of a Georgian mafia gang have been arrested in six European countries, Spanish court officials have said.
Some 24 people were arrested on Monday in Spain, while the other arrests were carried out in France, Italy, Austria, Switzerland and Germany.
The suspects are said to be linked to an organised crime gang involved in drugs smuggling and money laundering.
In Spain, the arrests took place in the cities of Madrid, Valencia, Barcelona and Bilbao, the newspaper El Mundo said on its website.
It added that the operation was co-ordinated at a European level by Spain's anti-corruption prosecutors.
Officials provided no additional information on the arrests across Europe.
