Spanish government to probe CIA Guantanamo flights

The Foreign Ministry will investigate whether a previous government allowed Spanish territory to be used to transport captured terrorism suspects to Guantanamo Bay, a Spanish newspaper reported on Sunday. The ministry said it hasn't been informed whether the government of Jose Maria Aznar, in power from 1996 to 2004, allowed CIA flights carrying captured foreigners to use Spanish air space or runways. The newspaper El Pais said in a report Sunday that it obtained a government document showing a US official asked the Foreign Ministry for such access in January 2002. The newspaper posted the document - labeled MUY SECRETO, or top secret - on its Web site.
