Livia Bogdan (27) from Romania, was the last member of her family to emigrate to Spain. When she arrived, her parents and siblings were already living in Coslada. She began working as a nanny in a home near Nuevos Ministerios. She had met a boy, Juan Muñoz Lara, and the two had begun dating. On the night of 10 March, they went to the Bogdan family home in Coslada to watch the football match between Real Madrid and Bayern Munich. They spent the night there and, on the following morning, the young man decided to accompany his girlfriend to work. They both boarded the suburban train. They were both killed.
11 March 2004 fell on a Thursday. Early that morning, a number of terrorists with links to Al-Qaeda planted thirteen bombs on four suburban trains covering routes running through Madrid. Ten of the bombs exploded between 7.37 and 7.39 am, when the trains were at Atocha, El Pozo and Santa Eugenia stations and alongside Calle Téllez. 191 people were killed in the attack and around 1,500 were wounded. It was the deadliest terrorist attack in Spanish history. On 3 April 2004, agents from the Special Operations Group (GEO) were about to enter an apartment in Leganés where the perpetrators of the attacks were believed to be hiding when the terrorists detonated twenty kilograms of explosives in an act of collective suicide. The ensuing blast killed one of the officers, bringing the total number of people killed by the 11 March bombers to 192.
