From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jamal Zougam (born 1973 in Tangier) was one of six men implicated in the 11 March 2004 Madrid Train Bombings.[1] He was detained on 13 March 2004, accused of multiple counts of murder, attempted murder, stealing a vehicle, belonging to a terrorist organisation and four counts of carrying out terrorist acts.

Spain's El País newspaper says three witnesses have testified to seeing him leave a rucksack aboard one of the bombed trains.

Zougam owned a mobile phone shop in the Lavapiés neighborhood in Madrid called Nuevo Siglo (The New Century). He is believed to be the person who sold telephones which were used to detonate the bombs from the bombings.[2] He also reportedly helped construct the bombs[3] and was one of the first to be arrested.[4]

On October 31st, 2007 he was convicted of 191 charges of murder and 1,856 charges of attempted murder, and received a sentence of 42,922 years in prison.[2]
