Fourteen suspected Islamic militants detained on suspicion of planning a terror attack in Barcelona have been transferred to Madrid for questioning at the National Court, officials said Sunday. Investigators were painstakingly sifting through evidence uncovered during Saturday's arrests, which were triggered by reports from several European intelligence agencies, an Interior Ministry spokesman said. Police made the arrests as they searched five homes in the area, seizing three large bags containing four timers and substances that could have been used to make bombs, the spokesman said on condition of anonymity in keeping with government rules.
