Police officers inspect scene of car bomb at Basque regional police headquarters in Ondarroa

At least three policemen were injured in the Ondarroa car bomb

A third car bomb in 24 hours has exploded in northern Spain, killing one person and injuring another.

Basque separatist group Eta gave a telephone warning before the latest blast, near a military academy in the town of Santona in Cantabria region.

Earlier, three policemen were among 11 people injured in an explosion outside a police station in Ondarroa.

And another bomb exploded in the outskirts of the Basque regional capital Vitoria, but no one was hurt.

Eta also gave a telephone warning before the Vitoria blast.

Correspondents say the attacks come at a time of increased turbulence in Basque politics.

Spain’s supreme court recently declared two Basque nationalist parties illegal because of alleged links to Eta.


  1. ETA is not a “basque separatist group”, it is a terrorist group. It is like calling Al Quaeda a “islamic group”, forgetting the terror they produce.
    Please, be clear about how you define things.
    Thank you
