A judge has ordered authorities to hold two of the four suspects in last week's attacks in Spain to be held without bail.
National Court Judge Fernando Andreu issued the orders after the four suspects answered questions about the attack that killed 15 people. He found that there was enough evidence to hold Mohamed Houli Chemlal, 21, and Driss Oukabir, 28, on preliminary charges of causing homicides and injuries of terrorist nature and of belonging to a terrorism organization. Houli Chemlal was also held for dealing with explosives.
One of the suspects, Sahl El Karib, will be detained for at least another 72 hours for continued police questioning.
The fourth suspect, Mohamed Aalla, was released because the judge ruled that there wasn't enough evidence to detain him.
