Seventh Anniversary of the Madrid Train Bombings

Hi all,

Today, March 11, 2011, marks the 7th Anniversary of the 2004 Madrid train bombings on passenger trains approaching the Atocha Train Station that killed 192 innocent people and wounded 1,800. Ten explosions occurred on 4 commuter trains during the morning rush hours. Three more bombs were found later in the day. Demolition teams detonated 2 of them and the last one was found in a luggage compartment.

The September 11th Families' Association/Tribute Visitor Center sends our support and condolences to the victims and their families' of this vicious attack. A senseless attack on innocent civilians must never be forgotten or tolerated.

  1. Dear Mr Lee,
    I was very afraid of the earthquake.
    I escaped under a table and waited for big rolling to be settled temporarily.
    Various things in the room fell into the floor.
    My hands shook and did not readily stop.
    About the earthquake, please read the following articles.
