Spain began a somber remembrance of the Madrid terror bombings on Saturday's second anniversary of the attacks - with plans for Christians, Muslims and Jews to join in prayers for peace, and for silence to descend at a memorial set up for victims. The normally festive atmosphere of a weekend in Spain will be replaced by heartbreaking memories of the morning of March 11, 2004, when 10 backpacks loaded with dynamite and shrapnel turned crowded commuter trains into a maelstrom of blood, twisted metal and wailing sirens. A total of 191 people died and more than 1,500 were wounded. It is a day etched so indelibly in Spaniards' minds that virtually everyone remembers where they were when they learned of the bombings, the frantic rescue efforts, the anguished search for missing loved ones.
