"Terror in Madrid"
On March 11th, 2004, international terror struck Europe. Four
trains filled with commuters on their way to work
exploded killing 171 people and wounding many more. At first, investigators
and the government blamed the Basque separatist group ETA, but the blame was
eventually place on an Al Queda terror cell. The Chilean immigrant Angelica
Manuel (middle) lost her husband in the bombings, and two days later she laid
him to rest in one of the city's chapels. Spanish President Jose Maria Aznar
lost his bid for re-election only days after the terror bombing. Many voters
believed Aznar blamed ETA knowing that Al Queda may have been to blame.
