Raids foiled Barcelona bomb plot, says judge
A group of alleged Islamist militants arrested in Barcelona at the weekend were planning a suicide bomb attack on the city's public transport system, a Spanish judge said yesterday.
Twelve Pakistani and two Indian nationals were detained in a series of raids in the city on Sunday.
After seven hours of questioning, Judge Ismael Moreno yesterday freed two of the men, but 10 suspects were held pending further investigation. All 10 deny any involvement in terrorism.
