The Voice of America News website reports today (August 3, 2012) that three suspected members of the al-Qaida terror group are being questioned in a Spanish court, where a judge will decide whether they remain behind bars.
Armed police shut down streets in Madrid today as the three men were led into the Audiencia Nacional Court.
Spanish officials say the suspects are of Russian and Turkish origin, and that the Turkish suspect had enough explosives to blow up a bus.
The two suspects of Russian origin were arrested earlier this week, as they were making their way toward the French border. Officials arrested the Turk in the southern part of Spain.
