Updated: 2004-03-12 16:19

Spain said Friday the death toll rose to 198 from a series of bombings on packed commuter trains Thursday, and that 1,430 people were wounded.

The previous death toll was given as 192 people with 1,421 hurt in the country's worst such attack.

The Spanish government said it believed armed Basque separatist group ETA was most likely to blame for the simultaneous bombings of four trains at Madrid stations.

However officials are also looking into possible Muslim militant involvement, after a claim purporting to come from a group aligned with al Qaeda claimed responsibility for the attacks.
