Terrorists on the loose

The week's news at a glance.

Rabat, Morocco

Morocco warned Spain last week that it had lost track of about 400 suspected Islamic terrorists. About 600 Moroccans are known to have trained in Afghanistan in camps sponsored by Osama bin Laden. But Morocco, a short ferry ride from Spain across the Strait of Gibraltar, had only been monitoring 200 of them, government officials told the Spanish judge who is leading the investigation into the Madrid train bombings of 3/11. The bombings, which killed 191 people, are believed to be the work of a Moroccan al Qaida cell. At least 50 Moroccans have been arrested in Spain in connection with the attacks.
