MADRID—Spanish police arrested seven men in Barcelona, suspected of stealing passports for radical Islamic cells in Thailand and Pakistan, and collaborating with the group that carried out the 2008 attacks in Mumbai, the country’s Interior ministry said Wednesday.

The suspects, six Pakistanis and one Nigerian, are believed to be part of a European network that allegedly obtained passports to be forged in Thailand. The passports were later distributed to cells including al Qaeda, Pakistan’s Lashkar e Taiba—which carried out the Mumbai attacks, killing 175 people—and Sri Lanka’s Tamil Tigers, the ministry said in a statement.
