    AP Enterprise: Suspect in Madrid Bombing Is Tied to Sept. 11 Suspect Mar 14, 2004 By Andrew Selsky/ Associated Press Writer MADRID, Spain (AP) - One of the three Moroccans arrested in the Madrid train bombings is linked to a man jailed in Spain for allegedly helping plan the Sept. 11 attack in the United States, according to court documents reviewed by The Associated Press.
