Noticias en Libertad 1ª Edición (Spain): “ETA Did Not Do 11-M” seems to the principal angle taken in reporting on today’s verdict in the March 11, 2004 terrorist attacks in Madrid, in the highest-circulation metro dailies of Spain’s fractious print media: El País, El Mundo, and ABC.
Some sources point to the acquittal of “The Egyptian” — a man who has maintained, as I understand it, that he knew the bombers, knew they were up to no good, but was not aware of or part of their plan — as a surprise.
ABC runs a section on international reporting of the case, where the angle of coverage varies from “7 acquitted” and “mastermind acquitted” (or “no masterminds convicted”) to “21 found guilty.”
