Spain has marked the 10th anniversary of the Madrid train bombings which killed 191 people, becoming Europe’s deadliest Islamist attack.

The Spanish royal familiy along with Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy attended a solemn ceremony at the Almudena Cathedral in Madrid.

On March 11, 2004, ten bombs packed into sports bags and detonated by mobile phones tore through the trains, leaving the tracks strewn with bodies and injuring more than 1,800 people.

Three weeks later, seven men including two suspected ringleaders of the train bombings blew themselves up in a suburban apartment after police closed in on them. The explosives were the same as were used in the March 11 attack.
