MADRID — The Spanish high court judge investigating the train bombings in Madrid will try only 40 of the 116 suspects being held in connection with the attacks.

The Spanish daily El Pais newspaper reported judge Juan del Olmo believes 40 of the suspects were involved with an Islamic radical cell, connected with al Qaeda, and will now bring them to trial for their alleged part in the bombings.

The attacks on four rush-hour trains killed 191 people and injured another 2000.

The report did not give a date for the trial.

But the paper said many of those being held were nearing the end of the two year period which the law permits for them to be held in custody without charge.
