March 13 (Bloomberg) — Spain arrested five people, three Moroccans and two Indians, in connection with the bombing attacks that killed at least 200 people and injured more than 1,500 in Madrid Thursday, said Interior Minister Angel Acebes.
Some of the arrested could have links with to extremist Moroccan groups,” Acebes said in a press conference tonight.
The arrests were made after police found a bomb concealed in a sports bag, which also held a cell phone. Following a trace from the telephone, the arrests were made in Madrid, Acebes said.
Two Spanish nationals from of Indian origin were also being questioned, Acebes said.
NOTE: The Moroccans could be linked to Al-Qaeda but I find it strange that two Indians (assuming they are Hindu) would be involved with Al-Qaeda.
