4 Spanish police convicted of torturing bombers

A Spanish court has convicted four Civil Guard police officers of torturing members of the armed Basque group ETA who were arrested for bombing Madrid's airport in 2006.
Tried in October, the officers were found guilty on Thursday of beating and threatening Mattin Sarasola and Igor Portu after they were taken into custody in 2008.
The airport bomb destroyed a five-story parking garage, killing two Ecuadorean immigrants and wounding 41 people. ETA claimed responsibility.
The court sentenced one officer to 4 1/2 years in jail and the other three to terms between 2 and 2 1/2 years.
The court found 11 other officers innocent.
Sarasola and Portu were sentenced this year for their roles in the attack.
