An investigative magistrate Friday accused three Moroccans, including a top suspect in train bombings here last week, of multiple counts of murder, attempted murder and terrorist activity in the attacks that killed 202 people and wounded 1,500.

Police hunted Tuesday for Moroccan extremists suspected in last week's bombings of commuter trains here while trying to determine how the plotters may be tied into terrorist networks behind the Sept. 11 attacks and suicide bombings last year in Casablanca, Morocco. A top suspect arrested last week in the Spain bombings is a Moroccan immigrant named Jamal Zougam, whom witnesses have placed aboard one of the targeted trains just before the explosions.

French authorities said the arrests in working-class suburbs resulted from an investigation of suicide bombing attacks last year in Casablanca, Morocco.

At least two of the five, who were described as four Moroccans and a Spaniard, were already known to anti-terrorist investigators, a senior Spanish law enforcement official said.

Spanish police are investigating a witness account that a Moroccan suspect with alleged links to Al Qaeda was aboard one of the trains bombed here last week, a high-ranking law enforcement official said Monday. Although investigators remain cautious of the witness' account because the identification was based on a photograph, the reported sighting adds to suspicions that Jamal Zougam, one of three Moroccan suspects under arrest, played a key role in the bombings, the official said.

The hunt for the masterminds behind last month's train bombings here has targeted an accused Al Qaeda operative who, although a fugitive wanted in connection with the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks in the United States, may have returned clandestinely to Spain to oversee the train plot, investigators said Tuesday.

A Moroccan arrested in last week's train bombings here surfaced nearly three years ago in an investigation that indicated he had wide-ranging contacts with Islamic extremists, including a group later accused of complicity in the Sept. 11 attacks, according to court documents and interviews Sunday. Spanish police searched the Madrid apartment of Jamal Zougam in August 2001, according to investigators.

A Moroccan preacher imprisoned here for inspiring deadly bombings in Casablanca and implicated in the Madrid train bombings last year also had significant contact in Hamburg with leaders of the Sept. 11 attacks, say members of a Muslim congregation in Germany. The preacher, Mohammed Fizazi, frequently gave sermons at Hamburg's Al Quds mosque while three of the hijack pilots were living in the city, attending Al Quds and becoming more involved in radical Islam.
