MADRID – The judge investigating the Madrid train bombings on Wednesday accused a new suspect of being a ringleader of the attacks.

Judge Juan del Olmo accused Moroccan Abdelilah Hriz, 29, of being a ‘material author’ of the bombings.

Hriz, who is currently in prison in Morocco, was allegedly linked to the attacks by DNA found on a comb and blood-stained trousers found at the flat and a house where a number of the leading suspects were staying.

Del Olmo went to Morocco to get a sample of DNA from Hriz last year.

He has now been charged in connection with causing the deaths of 191 people, the attempted murder of 1,811 people who were hurt in the bombings and helping to mount four terrorist attacks.

Twenty-nine other people are on trial in Madrid in connection with causing Spain’s worst terrorist atrocity.
