Ten explosive devices tore apart crowded commuter trains and railroad stations in Madrid during Thursday morning's rush hour. At least 190 people were killed and about 1,500 injured. The blasts occurred between 7:35 a.m. and 7:55 a.m., when explosives left in backpacks in trains and on tracks blew up along the suburban rail line. Three additional bombs did not explode and were discovered and destroyed by authorities.
