Gunmen killed former Spanish government minister Ernest Lluch in this northeastern seaport city Tuesday, in an attack blamed on the Basque separatist group ETA, news reports said. The shooting came two hours after a car-bomb blast blamed on the ETA shook a residential area on the city's outskirts. No one was injured in the explosion. There was no immediate claim of responsibility but authorities said the violence appeared to be the work of the ETA, or Basque Homeland and Freedom group.

The European Union published an expanded blacklist of terrorist organizations Tuesday that added five Palestinian groups, including one linked to Yasser Arafat, to those liable to face asset freezes and other sanctions. The new additions bring the EU list largely in line with one drawn up by the United States in the wake of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. The new list includes the Jewish extremist group Kahane Chai, the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC, and four individuals accused of belonging to the Basque separatist group ETA, which has carried out hundreds of bombings and shootings in Spain.
