Accused….Rabei Osman El Sayed Ahmed

Known as “El Egipcio” (the Egyptian), Ahmed is accused of being one of the intellectual authors of the Madrid bombings and is charged with murder of 191 persons, and attempted murder of 1824. The prosecution demands a total of 38656 years of imprisonment for him. A former Egyptian army officer, it has been suggested he is an expert in explosives although in his own declaration to the police he denies this. He was arrested in Italy after being secretly recorded by Italian police talking about his connections to the group that carried out the bombings. It is alleged that he was in Spain until a few days before the bombings
