Terrorism in Madrid

photoOver 190 people were killed and 1,200 wounded Thursday morning in Madrid when 10 separate coordinated bombs ripped through the city's rail system. Spanish officials were quick to blame ETA, the Basque Separatist movement, but many U.S. experts are pointing to Al Qaeda. With no claims of responsibility, it's too early to assign blame, but it seems terrorist attacks in general are becoming more frequent and deadlier.
