Twenty-one people accused of involvement in the Madrid train bombings in 2004 were found guilty by a Spanish court on Wednesday.

The al-Qaida inspired bombings killed 191 people and injured 1,700 on crowded commuter trains.

Seven of the accused, including a man described as one of the organizers of the bombings, were acquitted.
