MADRID (AP) Spain's anti-doping agency says state prosecutors have opened an investigation into individuals involved in the Lance Armstrong scandal.

The agency says prosecutors in the eastern province of Alicante are examining the Spanish citizens mentioned in a report by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency into Armstrong's doping activities.

The USADA report mentions Spanish doctors Luis Garcia del Moral and Pedro Celaya and trainer Pepe Marti.

The move comes just days after a Madrid court found doctor Eufemiano Fuentes guilty of endangering the health of athletes through blood doping.

The court suspended Fuentes' one-year sentence and ordered the destruction of evidence that could implicate more athletes.
