Madrid bombings suspects held in Paris

Published on 14/06/2005

PARIS, June 14 (AFP) - French intelligence agents were on Tuesday questioning two men arrested on suspicion of helping one of the organisers of the March 2004 bomb attacks in Madrid, officials said.  

The two men, whose names and nationalities were not released, were detained Monday in the Paris suburbs and were being held at the headquarters of the domestic intelligence service DST.  

They are suspected of providing lodgings for Hassan El-Haski, a member of the Moroccan Islamic Combatant Group who Spanish police believe was one of the masterminds of the Madrid train bombings.  

Nearly 200 people were killed in the explosions on March 11, 2004.
