MADRID —

Spain's National Court has ordered a Turk and two Russians suspected of plotting a terrorist attack to be released from preventive custody for lack of evidence.

A court spokesman said Tuesday that Eldar Magomedov and Mohamed Ankari Adamov - Russians of Chechen descent - and Turk Cengiz Yalcin are still suspected of being members of a terrorist group and having possessed explosives but that there is insufficient evidence to keep them in jail while investigations continue.

The three were arrested and jailed on provisional charges last August. Spain alleged then they were al-Qaida members and released a video it claimed showed the suspects training for an attack in Spain or elsewhere in Europe using a model plane.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity in keeping with court regulations.
