Former Vermont Governor Howard Dean is scheduled to attend a four-day summit on terrorism in Madrid. The conference, which opened on Tuesday, comes almost one year after the city suffered one of Europe’s worst terrorist attacks.
Dean, the chairman of the Democratic National Committee, will attend the meeting alongside presidents, prime ministers, kings and experts from 50 countries. U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez will be the highest ranking U.S. official at the meeting.
The meeting will include a commemoration ceremony for victims of the March 11, 2004 train bombing in downtown Madrid that killed 191 people and wounded more than 1,500.
