Spain had near-miss with terrorism attributed to Chechen group

Last year, Spain foiled what it said was a terrorist plot to fly gliders into the British enclave of Gibraltar. Two Chechens and a Turk were convicted, but later freed when a judge decided there wasn't enough evidence. Various intelligence agencies reportedly were interested in the incidents, because of the ties to Chechnya.
