Bomb found on rail line in Spain

(The Associated Press distributed the following article on April 2.)

MADRID, Spain -- Police found a bomb Friday on a high-speed rail line between Madrid and Seville, Interior Minister Angel Acebes said.

Bomb-disposal experts alerted by a railway employee found 22-24 pounds of dynamite under a track about 40 miles south of Madrid on the rail line running to Seville, Acebes said.

The explosives were connected to a detonator with a 430-foot cable, the minister told a news conference.

He said it was not known who placed the bomb.

The bomb scare came less than a month after 10 backpack bombs ripped through commuter trains in Madrid, killing 191 people and injuring more than 1,800.

On Thursday, police in northern Spain on Thursday defused three letter bombs addressed to journalists in Madrid.
