Spanish police have found an explosive device on a high-speed railway between Madrid and Seville, Interior Minister Angel Acebes said.
All traffic on the line was halted after the discovery at Mocejon, in the Toledo area, Mr Acebes said.

The minister later said the explosive used was similar to that contained in the 11 March bombs on Madrid trains which killed 191 people.

He said the line would reopen after it was checked "kilometre by kilometre".

Mr Acebes said that in future, the line would be permanently guarded by the army and police, using 45 helicopters.
