Many thanks to Hermes for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:

00:01   The police have struck against Al Qaeda in Valencia.
00:04   Agents of the civil guard detained this man,
00:06   whose initials are M.H., and is known
00:08   as the librarian of Al Qaeda. He was
00:11   a key figure in the recruitment of
00:13   new jihadists through the internet.
00:15   “He was engaged in the spreading
00:17   of terrorist activities, in the indoctrination
00:20   and recruiting of terrorists,”
00:23   and in order to reach this goal his
00:25   dedication was total, more than 15 hours
00:28   a day, and he did it from this sixth floor flat
00:31   in Valencia, where he lived with his
00:33   Spanish wife and his teenager daughter.
00:36   The neighbors are astonished.
00:39   “Well, no idea, I don’t know,
00:41   I got to know about it from the journalists.”
00:43   “I’ve suddenly seen some cops there.”
00:45   “I’ve just come down to the street,
00:47   I know nothing at all.”
00:50   He was under surveillance for
00:52   more than a year. After seven hours
00:54   in the flat the agents confiscated
00:56   a huge amount of material.
00:58   The operation remains open.
