MADRID, Spain - Ten powerful explosions rocked three Madrid train stations Thursday just days before Spain's general elections, killing at least 173 rush-hour commuters and injuring more than 600 others.

Spain blamed the Basque separatist group ETA for the worst terror attack in its history, but a senior U.S. intelligence source told NBC News that that's still not conclusive and that the CIA is looking for any connection to the al-Qaida terrorist network.

A somber Prime Minister Jose Maria Aznar called the attacks "mass murder" and vowed to hunt down the attackers.

A total of 10 bombs exploded, Interior Minister Angel Acebes said. Police found and detonated three others.

Re: Al Qaeda

(Reuters) - A letter purporting to come from Osama bin Laden's al Qaeda network claimed responsibility for train bombings in Spain on Thursday, calling them strikes against "crusaders," a London-based Arabic newspaper said. The Spanish government has said Basque separatists were the main suspect in the bombings of four trains early on Thursday that killed 190 people.
