Efforts to locate second body from rubble at Madrid airport

At Madrid’s international airport, rescue workers are still trying to uncover the body of one of the two Ecuadoreans killed in a bomb attack last Saturday.

The body of Diego Armando Estacio was located last night, buried under the rubble of a parking building at terminal four.

The body of the other victim, Carlos Alonso Palate, was found on Wednesday and has already been flown back to Ecuador.

While ETA has not yet officially claimed responsibility for the attack, one of the warning calls was made in the name of the armed Basque separatist group.

The Spanish Prime Minister, who visited the site on Thursday, said the bombing had not dashed his hopes for a negotiated peace in the Basque region.

He has been forced to call off planned dialogue with ETA, however, a process on which he has staked a lot politically.
