Madrid Bombs

Madrid Bombs Trial
"Defense lawyers say the case against many of the 28 men and one woman is thin and based largely on conflicting witness accounts.

Most of the men were North African immigrants, and many had long police records for drug trafficking and petty theft."Madrid Train Bombings Trial Begins
