Big news around here: This morning they arrested eight Algerians on charges of belonging to Al Qaeda in the Maghreb. This lot was providing logistical, financial, and recruiting support to Al Qaeda activities. The arrests were made in Castellon, Barcelona, and Pamplona. Ten more people were detained; their nationalities and involvement have not yet been announced.

This bunch has carried out five attacks in five days in Algeria, the worst on Sunday, killing 13 people. They are not related to the Pakistani group rounded up in Barcelona in January on charges of plotting to suicide-bomb public transport. The United States believes this bunch of Pakistanis is linked to the outfit run by Baitullah Mehsud, suspected of organizing the assassination of Benazir Bhutto.

What´s the latest news from the truck drivers front? I hear there have been cases of panic hoarding in BCN. Any noticeable shortages yet?

Could you fill us in about who's behind the strike? apparently it's a minority employers' organisation that's called it, is that all there is to it?

The stoppage's already taken its first casualty, a truck driver run over by a lorry while trying to picket is reported dead.

"This lot was providing....."

"This bunch has carried out..."

NO. They have been arrested, not charged. They are not guilty until proven so.
Do you think the Spanish cops always get it right? No.

Every new life that enters this world gives us a reason to celebrate life. These new-born lives give us a reason to keep going. They define the beauty and innocence, and it is our duty to give them the best care and, nurture them thoroughly.
