MADRID, April 11 ? A Spanish judge indicted 29 people today in connection with the 2004 train bombings in Madrid, suggesting that the group attacked Spain for its support of the American-led invasion of Iraq and for its increasingly aggressive police investigations of Islamic radical groups.
In a long-awaited report running nearly 1,500 pages, Judge Juan del Olmo seemed to validate suspicions that the group deliberately timed the March 11 attacks to influence Spain’s general elections three days later and to pressure the government to withdraw its troops from Iraq.
