Spain on high alert

Madrid, July 7
Spain put its security forces on maximum alert in case of terrorist attacks on Thursday after a series of explosions hit London's public transport system.

Spain, which suffered Europe's worst Al QaIda attack last year, offered help to Britain to "pursue, arrest and put before justice" those responsible for the blasts.

"Immediately after learning of the London attacks, I have given orders to the interior minister to activate all alert and prevention systems," Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero said in a televised announcement.

Interior Minister Jose Antonio Alonso put security forces on the highest alert under Spain's anti-terrorist prevention plan, the Interior Ministry said.

The plan calls for the army and police to guard busy public places, department stores, transport networks and strategic sites such as energy and water installations. Reuters
