Terror Attack in Madrid Kills Over 180

Ten terrorist bombs tore through trains and stations along a commuter line at the height of Madrid’s morning rush hour Thursday, killing more than 180 people and wounding at least 600 before this weekend’s general elections. Officials blamed Basque separatists for the worst terror attack in ETA’s history. According to one Spanish Blogger, “As it was in New York, in Spain everything will now be spoken of in terms of ‘before March 11,’ and after.”

Update: The number of causualties has reached over 190. Thousands are inured and according to this MSNBC article a van with detonators and an Arabic-language tape containing Quranic verses was found 15 miles east of Madrid.
