eleanor Posted March 16, 2004 Share Posted March 16, 2004 [color=firebrick] O_o Wow, I'm a bit surprised to see this thread hasn't been made yet. [b]3/11[/b]: Madrid, Spain was attacked by terrorists [now confirmed to be Al Qaeda [sp?] after officials found a video camera] by being bombed at the train station. I think the death count right now is 190-200 people, with over 600 people injured. Many people think that it's related to the 9/11 attacks, which I really agree with on a whole. I think they've arrested about five people already, tracking them down by finding out the buyers of these cheap cell phones and phone cards, because apparantly the terrorists were using them to communicate to each other. They used ten backpacks to hide the bombs and you can figure out the rest. The whole mess has caused Spain to re-elect a new Prime Minister that opposes sending troops to Iraq to help the US and it's just very devastating overall. However, [b]11 million[/b] Spainish people gathered at a rally to support the victoms' families and such.[/color] Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
