Spanish Judge Indicts 22 for Terror

by Harold Heckle from The Associated Press

National Court judge Baltasar Garzon charged 18 of the suspects with belonging to a terrorist organization, the other four were accused of collaborating with it. The cell's mission was to send potential fighters to Iraq "so they might join in terrorist activity sponsored and directed by al-Qaida," Garzon said. One of those arrested, Moroccan Omar Nakhcha, 24, was also charged with helping some of those involved in the 2004 Madrid train bombings to escape from justice. The bombings killed 191 people and wounded 1,800.
