Spain Arrests 2 in Connection with Madrid Bombings


Police in Spain have arrested two men in connection with the deadly Madrid train bomb attacks in March that killed 191 people and injured 1,900 others.

Authorities say the two men: a Syrian and an Egyptian, are suspected of having ties to some of the train bombers who blew themselves up during a police raid in the suburbs of Madrid in April.

Police also say the suspects were detained late Wednesday in the town of Irun near the border with France.

Spanish media reported one of the suspects may have used the same mobile phone as Serhane Ben Abdelmajid Fakhet, the alleged ringleader in the Madrid attacks.

Some information for this report provided by AP and AFP.
