I was surprised that no one has mentioned the lasting bombing in Madrid, that has left 3 people dead, and one person fighting for his life(even if he survives will lose a lot of his capabilities)...AND an 11 year old girl badly injured.
So what do you all think?
Do you think it deters tourists from coming to Madrid? Do you think the government ought to do something more? If so, what? I'm interested in the media coverage in North America(if there is any)?! I have read about it in online newspapers, but unfortunately i have no english channels.
So... i would like to hear what people across the ocean are saying...and people anywhere else tambien...

Check the heading labeled "Safety and Security Issues", and the subheading labeled "ETA". There's a nice little discussion already in progress there. We'd be interested in what you have to add!
Ongi etorri!

As CaliBasco said - there is a thread going on this under Safety & Security. For additional news - go to front page of this site and check the on-line papers in both English and Spanish. Also, try Yahoo then request Spain news. If you have a problem with getting the Yahoo links come back and tell me - I can send you the link
