Bulgaria: Spain Marks 10 Years Since Madrid Bombings Photo by brookings.edu

Spain marks the 10th anniversary of the Madrid train bombings, which left 191 people dead and wounded 1,800.

The simultaneous, coordinated attacks on four commuter trains in the Spanish capital were Europe's worst terrorist act since the Lockerbie bombing in 1988.

Twenty-one suspects were convicted for taking part in the act, believed to be organized by an al-Qaeda-linked terrorist cell.

A special commemorative ceremony has been held in Madrid to remember the casualties.
