No injuries in blasts in Majorca

August 10, 2009|Times Wire Reports

Two small bombs blamed on Basque separatist group ETA exploded in downtown locations on the Spanish resort island of Majorca, causing no injuries, the government said. Police defused a third device found nearby.

The blasts occurred just over a week after ETA killed two police officers in Majorca in attacks apparently aimed at striking fear among tourists at the height of the summer holiday season.

One bomb exploded in La Rigoleta restaurant on the Can Pere Antoni beachfront in Palma de Majorca and the second in an underground passage at the central Plaza Mayor square, the government said. Officers deactivated a bomb left at Bar Enco.
