Spanish judge indicts 13 al Qaeda suspects

[JURIST] A Spanish judge indicted 13 suspected Islamic militants Wednesday on charges of forming terror cells in the al Qaeda network.

The two terror cells they created worked out of Morocco and Madrid, the latter believed to be partly responsible for the March 11, 2004 train bombings [JURIST news archive, BBC timeline] in Madrid.
