The Spanish Parliament approved the final report on the Madrid bombings investigation. The 300-page report concluded that the conservative government at the time, led by Jose Maria Aznar, misled voters by underestimating threats from Islamic militants, and initially blaming Basque separatists for the attack. The Madrid bombings - which killed 191 people and injured about 1500 -- occurred three days before the election that brought a Socialist government to power. The debate includes statements by the President of the Commission, the Socialist and Conservative Popular parties.
