Spain tries 2 over 'praising terrorism' cartoons

Spanish prosecutors are seeking 18-month jail terms for a Spanish cartoonist and a Moroccan colleague charged with praising terrorism, a court official said Tuesday.
Prosecutors said one of the drawings depicts buildings resembling the Twin Towers collapsing, with people dressed in the festive red-and-white garb of Spain's running of the bulls scurrying away.
The official said the two suspects went on trial Monday at the National Court and a verdict is expected some time in the coming weeks. The official spoke to the AP on Tuesday on condition of anonymity in line with court rules.
