Spain goes on highest alert for elections
by UPI

MADRID -- Still wary of train bombings that shook the 2004 general elections, Spain has put security forces on maximum alert ahead of its March 9 vote.

Nearly 200 people died in the March 11, 2004, terrorist attack in Madrid.

The Interior Ministry told CNN that Thursday's action means the armed forces will be accompanying police in patrolling potential terrorist targets, such as transportation hubs, shopping areas, sports events and political events.

The security alert, now at its highest level, moved up from Level 2, which had been in effect since the bombing trial began last year.
