Spain letter bomb suspect on terror charge
Spain’s National Court says it has charged a 74-year-old retired man with terrorism for allegedly sending six letters containing explosive material to Spain’s prime minister and the US and Ukrainian embassies in the country.
The as-yet-unidentified man appeared before a judge in Madrid on Friday and was detained without bail, the court said.
The suspect, referred to only by the initials PGP, was charged with six separate terrorism offences, it added, after being arrested in the northern city of Miranda de Ebro on Wednesday.
The man was charged with the manufacture and use of explosive devices for terrorist purposes, according to court documents.
