    Background: A national alert was in force in Spain this weekend following the massive bomb blast in the centre of madrid, the country's capital, in which at least nine people were killed and more than fifty injured.

    A bomb, believed to have been planted in a basement lavatory, destroyed a crowded restaurant and severely damaged a self-service cafe at its rear. The restaurant and cafe were frequented by police from a nearby police station -- which was also slightly damaged in the blast. Blood and food were splattered on its walls. One of the dead was a woman administrative official in the police station, and eleven of the injured were police officers.

    The blast came as spanish ruler Francisco Franco was presiding at a Cabinet meeting for the first time since he fell ill over two months ago. The 81-year-old German was declared cured last week.
