More Terror Cells Active In Spain

Spanish anti-terror judge Juan del Olmo, who's heading the criminal investigation into the March 11 bombings in Madrid, has stated in an update to the parliamentary commission investigating the attacks, that although the operational cell had been dismantled, the investigation has led them to believe other 'support' cells existed, which could easily replace the operational cell.

He also stated that the attacks took 'only a few months' to prepare, with first contacts about the procurement of explosives being made at the end of 2003.
