Face of a massacre suspect.


THIS is one of the Madrid bomb suspects being led away by police, after the discovery of a mobile in a bomb-bag that failed to explode.

The release of the first picture of any of the five men being quizzed came as an Italian newspaper claimed Spain was warned of possible attacks a month ago.

Italy's secret service SISMI learned that a former Iraqi army colonel had told a suspected al-Qaeda cell in Madrid to strike, said Il Messagero newspaper.

It was further alleged that phone repairer Jamal Zougam - one of three Moroccans among the five held on Saturday - had links to a man who shared a London flat with Zacharias Moussaousi, suspected of being the 20th 9/11 hijacker.

A message on the internet in December - carried by the Global Islamic Media newsgroup - had urged that the Spanish elections held last weekend should be "exploited to the extreme".
