MADRID, SPAIN MADRID, Spain (AP) _ Police arrested 69 people in a raid on a hotel and accused 45 of them of fraud, illegal association and forgery for being members of the Church of Scientology.

Among those held was Heber Jentzsch, 53, of Utah, who is the president of the Church of Scientology International, and two other Americans, a judge told reporters at a news conference Sunday night, hours after the raid. The other two Americans were not identified.

A court spokesman said 24 of the original 69 people arrested were released when it was learned during questioning that they were not leaders of the group.
