Spain arrests 19 for links with Zarqawi
MADRID: Spanish authorities have arrested 19 suspected extremists, including five linked to last year's deadly Madrid train bombings, the interior ministry announced Wednesday.

The other 14 suspects are alleged to be connected with the radical group Ansa al-Islam, which is believed to have links with Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, who is blamed for many of the bloodiest attacks in Iraq.

More than 500 police were mobilised for the swoops, which were carried out in the regions around Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia and Andalucia as well as in the Spanish enclave of Cueta north of Morocco.

The March 11, 2004 train bombings in Madrid killed 191 people and injured 1,900.

1. You mean they didn't just pick some country they wanted to make war on?
They actually investigated and went after the ones responsible? How very...socialist...of them. :sarcasm:

Whenever there is talk about this super bad terraman al-Zarqawi, these are the standard keywords.

I guess no one wants that 25m USD reward that doesn't exist.
