Conspirators in the attack on the United States were also in various European countries and Spain is the second country to prosecute the alleged 9/11 plotters.
Many of the conspirators were essential to the preliminary process of setting up the strategic plans to gain monetary resources and provide assistance in the planning of the attacks. The Spain counterparts helped benefit the idea in a big way and now they are posed to face justice in Spain.
MADRID, Spain - They led quiet lives as immigrant businessmen or laborers, raising kids and blending into Spanish society. On Friday, they will go on trial as suspected members of an al-Qaida cell charged with using their new homeland as a staging ground for the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

Twenty-four men — mostly Syrians and Moroccans — will sit on wooden benches in a cramped, bulletproof chamber at a makeshift courtroom as Spain becomes only the second country after Germany to try suspects in the al-Qaida terrorist assault on the United States.

The trial culminates a lengthy inquiry by Baltasar Garzon, Spain's top anti-terrorism magistrate, who began investigating Muslim militants in Spain in the mid-1990s and started arresting Sept. 11 suspects just two months after hijacked jets struck the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.

This is a very interesting development in seeking justice for those who've died at the World Trade Center. Justice may not be served properly in this lifetime by those people but at least it will give some satisfaction to everyone affected, hopefully.
