Serbia Arrests Suspect in Madrid Bombings
Serbian police arrested a key suspect wanted in connection with last year’s Madrid train bombings, the Spanish Interior Ministry said.
The suspect was identified as Abdelmajid Bouchar, a 22-year-old Moroccan. He had been living in Belgrade under an assumed name and using a fake Iraqi passport, the ministry said in a statement.
He allegedly fled a suburban Madrid apartment shortly before alleged ringleaders in the attack blew themselves up to avoid arrest, three weeks after the bombings that killed 191 people.
