Spain Charges 8 With Helping September 11 Terror Suspect

Spain's top anti-terrorism judge has indicted eight Islamic militants for allegedly helping a suspected mastermind of the September 11 attacks on the United States.

Judge Baltasar Garzon Monday formally charged the eight with providing fake identity papers and other documents to Ramzi Binalshibh.

He is in U.S. custody, suspected of being the contact between al-Qaida and the September 11 hijackers.

One of the suspects charged Monday - Tahar Ezirouali - is still at large and was indicted in absentia.
