Spain tries 11 over alle




Eleven suspected Islamic extremists of South Asian origin went on trial Thursday over an alleged plot to stage suicide attacks on the Barcelona subway system on orders from the Pakistan Taliban. Police foiled the alleged plan in January 2008 with a series of raids in Spain's second largest city, acting after a member of the cell designated to blow himself up got cold feet and alerted authorities, according to a Spanish prosecutor. The defendants are nine men of Pakistani nationality or origin, and two from India. They have all pleaded innocent.
