Spanish Interior Minister José Barrionuevo held the Islamic Jihad Organization responsible for the bombing. However, the case was closed in 1987 due to a lack of arrests. In 2005, Spain requested the alleged Al-Qaeda operative and writer Mustafa Setmariam Nasar's extradition from Pakistan for his role in the bombing.
