(ANSA) - Brussels, March 12 - Europol will set up a special unit to hunt down extremists on the Internet, Spanish Interior Minister Fernandez Diaz said at a meeting of European interior ministers Thursday.
    "The mission will be to clean up the Internet of any radical content and to rid it of terrorists," the minister said.
    The new unit will be "a global point of reference" and will help prevent "radicalization and the rise of lone wolves," he said.
