Police in Spain have arrested six more people in connection with the Madrid train bombings which killed around 200 people.
Spanish authorities say police wire taps revealed the six Spanish nationals had been negotiating with the Moroccan Islamic extremists, jailed over suspicion of carrying out the train bombings in March.
Our Europe correspondent, Fran Kelley, says the negotiations had involved the sale of explosives.
The arrests follow the capture by the Italian police of Rabei Osman Ahmed, known as Mohamed the Egyptian, accused of masterminding the Madrid attacks.
Some news agencies have reported the arrest warrant quotes an alleged phone conversation with members of a Belgian terrorist cell, in which the accused claimed he planned the Madrid bombings.
Fifteen people were arrested in Belgium in a coordinated raid - four of them have now been charged with preparing a terrorist attack and seven have been released.
