Officials believe that yesterday's terrorist attack in Madrid was activated by multiple mobile phones. 10 bombs were stashed in sportsbags aboard various commuter trains, causing the death of nearly 200 people and injury of over a 1000. It was one of the worst attacks in modern European history. The discovery of remote detination will surely intensify the hunt for those responsible--a hunt that we can only hope will be short.
