SEVILLE – An investigation was underway Tuesday after two newspapers in the southern city of Almeria received copies of a letter written in Arabic threatening law enforcement personnel involved in the war against Islamic terrorism.

Juan Jose Lopez Garzon, the central government's representative to the Andalusia region, told a press conference the letter appeared last week. He urged local residents to remain calm.

Lopez Garzon declined comment on whether any evidence had been uncovered pointing to the existence of the group that sent the letters, the self-proclaimed "Andalusian Suicide Brigades."

"(Citizens) may rest assured that any incident of this sort, no matter how dubious, will be investigated thoroughly," he said.

"And this case will, naturally, be handled in such a fashion."

Islamic extremist bombers killed 191 people last 11 March with coordinated attacks on four Madrid commuter trains.
