Trial begins

11th March marks the third anniversary of the Madrid train bombings.

The trial of the 29 suspects begins in Madrid at 10:00am this morning. Seven of them, mostly Morrocans, are accused of murder and belonging to a terrorist group. The rest are accused of collaborating with a terrorist group and handling explosives.

The series of bombs devastated four trains killing 191 people and injuring 1755 more. Coming just days before the Spanish general elections, it was thought to be the reason why the socialist government were replaced by a conservative one.
