Europe is dealing with what looks like a string of terrorist attempts to target passenger trains. Today, a high speed train in Germany slammed into metal slabs that had been screwed onto the track -- apparently put there to derail it. The cars stayed on track and no one was injured. Last Friday, a bomb was discovered under the tracks of a high speed rail line in Spain.

Spanish authorities now say five terror suspects died in yesterday's suicide explosion near Madrid. They believe the ringleader of last month's train bombings that killed nearly 200 people died in the blast. Police found more explosives in the building where the suspects were cornered, which they say was to be used in more bombings. The suspects set off the explosion yesterday as police moved in, killing one officer and wounding 15 others.
