Jihadists working from bases in Europe — and even in that vaunted bastion of Islamic moderation, Bosnia. From Bulgaria’s Sofia News Agency, with thanks to Fraser:
The terrorists that carried out the Madrid bombings in March 2004 have been trained at special Al Qaeda based in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
The news was broken Tuesday by the chief of the local police department Dragomir Andan at a special press conference. RIA Novosti cited the top police chief as saying that all 11 terrorists left for Spain passing through Sarajevo.
It was also reported that the explosives used in the terror acts were produced in Bosnia.
