MADRID-Spanish legal sources said 13 people arrested in connection with Islamic extremists and those who carried out the Madrid train bombings last year have been released on bail.

Four of those arrested last week in Madrid allegedly had close links to Youssef Belhadj, believed to be Al-Qaeda's spokesman in Europe.

He arrived in Madrid on Friday after being extradited from Belgium on suspicion of involvement in the 11 March attacks, in which 191 people were killed.

Six of those detained in a police swoop last Friday were Moroccans, three were Syrians, one an Egyptian, another a Palestinian and one an Algerian.

All must answer weekly bail and surrender their passports.
