A Spanish court has sentenced three men to thousands of years in jail for their part in the Madrid bombings in 2004. Moroccans Jamal Zougam and Otman el Ghanoui and Spaniard Emilio Trashorras were convicted of murder, but suspected mastermind Rabei Ahmed was acquitted. A total of 28 people faced trial over the blasts on four trains that killed 191 and injured more than 1,800. Twenty-one were found guilty of at least one charge and seven were acquitted. (BBC)
