Three men have been arrested in Bulgaria while allegedly on their way to join militants in Syria, says the country’s State Agency for National Security.

The agency announced the arrests on Tuesday. Two of the arrestees are Moroccan and the other is a Brazilian.

They were arrested at the southeastern Kapitan Andreevo checkpoint on the border with Turkey on Monday afternoon, according to the agency.

They will be extradited to Spain, where they are wanted on charges of participating in a terrorist group.

The United Nations has warned that unprecedented numbers of foreigners are flocking to Iraq and Syria to join extremist groups such as the ISIL, despite US-led strikes on the groups’ positions.

According to a report by the UN Security Council, 15,000 people have flocked to Syria and Iraq to fight alongside the ISIL or other such groups. The report added that the militants come from more than 80 countries, which had not contributed to international terrorism before.
