When a 600-meter fiber optic cable was stolen on the high-speed train line in Spain, high-speed train services between Madrid and Barcelona, ​​the country’s two largest cities, were stopped for 5 hours.

Railway infrastructure company ADIF confirmed in a statement that the cable was stolen in the Catalonia region on Sunday night. At least 15 flights were canceled due to the theft, and hundreds of passengers waited at the stations for hours.

In the statement made on the social media account of the local police, it was stated that a 19-year-old man was detained near the train line, and it was emphasized that there could be new detentions.

In Spain, which has had a very busy tourism season after the pandemic, the transportation infrastructure has also been affected by this intensity. Therefore, any glitch causes clutter.
