Spain: Amnesty International condemns massacre in Madrid
Amnesty International condemns in the strongest possible terms the multiple bombings that have so far claimed the lives of more than 175 people and injured over 400 at three different Madrid railway stations today.
"Deliberately attacking civilians can never be justified," said Amnesty International. "Targeting commuters going about their daily business shows complete contempt for the most fundamental principles of humanity."
"The scale of this attack on the civilian population is unprecedented in Spain," said Amnesty International. "To the extent that these bombings are part of a widespread attack on the civilian population of Spain in furtherance of an organization's policy, they would constitute a crime against humanity."
"These attacks must stop. Those responsible must be brought to justice in proceedings which meet international standards."
