July 4, 2007 16:36

A Spanish Armed Forces plane on Wednesday brought home the bodies of seven tourists killed in a suicide bombing in Yemen, and five of the injured. A sixth Spaniard injured in Monday's attack, Maria Asuncion Vitorica, remained in a Yemeni hospital to undergo a second operation and was reported to be in serious condition, Spanish authorities said. Foreign Minister Miguel Angel Moratinos was on the runway to meet the plane when it arrived just after dawn Wednesday. Moratinos greeted three tourists who could walk - two women and a man, all wearing bandages - as they came down the aircraft steps. Two others were brought down by medical services.
