November 03, 2009|Times Wire Reports

A Spanish judge indicted seven people for allegedly helping several of the suspected Madrid train bombers flee after the 2004 terrorist attacks.

National Court Judge Eloy Velasco charged six of the seven with belonging to an unidentified terrorist group, while one was accused of collaboration.

Velasco said the seven provided money, cover and information to help six men evade justice after allegedly participating in the March 2004 bombings.

The morning rush-hour attacks on commuter trains killed 191 people and wounded nearly 2,000.

Four of the seven indicted are free, one is in custody and the whereabouts of two others are unknown.
