MADRID - Spanish police arrested two people on suspicion they aided some of the terrorists involved in the Madrid train bombings.
The judge heading the probe into Spain's worst terrorist attack, Juan del Olmo, ordered the arrests of two Moroccan men and filed charges against a third person, a Spanish citizen already serving time for forgery at El Botafuegos prison in the southern city of Algeciras.
The arrests after the new accusation the day before against Moroccan Abdelilah Hriz, currently in jail in his home country, whom Del Olmo accused of being a material author of the March, 2004, bombings that left 191 dead in Madrid.
The accusation came after DNA tests were performed on genetic samples taken from the dwellings used by the terrorists implicated in the multiple bombings.
The new arrests came during the trial against 29 defendants - 15 Moroccans, nine Spaniards, two Syrians, one Algerian, one Lebanese and one Egyptian - that began on 15 February.
