MELLIA - Police have arrested another suspect allegedly connected with the Madrid bombings, Spain's worst terrorist attack.
Rachid Mohamed Kaddur was arrested in Melilla, Spain's north African territory.
Police sources said Kaddur met with one of the Islamic terrorists involved in the attacks, days before the bombings on 11 March in which 191 people were killed.
He is said to have met Abdennabi Kounjaa "Abdallah" who committed suicide with six other Islamic extremists when they blew up a flat in Leganes on 3 April.
Kaddur also allegedly met Rachid Bendouda, whose nickname is Fat Rachid, who was arrested on Wednesday.
Kaddur, 35, was said to have been in regular contact with Rachid and lived in the same area of Madrid, Lavapies. They both worked selling clothes.
Kaddur was arrested in Melilla where, police sources claimed, he was hiding.
On Thursday night he is known to have taken a boat from Malaga to Melilla.
