Remains of Fifth Terror Suspect Found in Madrid Bomb Blast - 2004-04-04


Police in Madrid say they have found the remains of a fifth terror suspect killed in a bomb blast near the Spanish capital Saturday.

Four others were also killed in that blast -- including the alleged Tunisian mastermind of the March 11th Madrid train bombings, Sarhane Ben Abdelmajid Fakhet.

The five were killed when they set off a bomb in their apartment hideout, which had been surrounded by police. One police officer was also killed and 12 others were wounded.

Spanish Interior Minister Angel Acebes says the terrorist cell behind the train bombings appeared to have been planning more attacks before they killed themselves. He said police found bomb-making materials in the rubble of the apartment.

Mr. Acebes blames the March 11th attack on the Moroccan Islamic Combatant Group, which has alleged ties to al-Qaida.

Fifteen suspects, including 11 Moroccans, are being held in connection with the train bombings. The March 11th attacks killed almost 200 people.

Meanwhile, French police said Sunday they have found a suspected weapons factory used by the Basque separatist group ETA. The workshop was discovered in the village of Saint-Michel, near the Spanish border. Police confiscated what they said as a very large arsenal of weapons and explosives. The owner of the property and a suspected ETA member were arrested.
