NPR's Sylvia Poggioli reports from Madrid on the resurfacing of anti-Muslim prejudice in Spain, following the March 11 train bombings. Spain's government has arrested several Moroccan suspects in connection with the bombings. In 1492, Spain expelled the Moorish Muslims who had been part of the Ottoman-Turk Empire. Over the last few decades, there's been a steady stream of North African immigrants into Spain.
