Description

María Teresa Jaro Narillos, 32, was determined to give priority to bringing up her three-year-old daughter Andrea and worked part-time so that she could spend her afternoons with the girl. She had been working in the customer service department of the Logista Group for five months. Each morning she took the train from Coslada to Chamartín and from there took a bus to work. On 11 March, she was killed in the explosion at the station in El Pozo del Tío Raimundo.

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.
