2004: Simultaneous explosions on four rush hour trains in Madrid, Spain, kill 191 people and wound 1,800 more. The official investigation found that the attacks, which came three days before Spain's general elections, were directed by an al-Qaeda-inspired terrorist cell. A total of 21 people were found guilty on a range of charges from forgery to murder for their roles in the attacks.
