The Spanish government also blamed ETA when Islamic terrorists bombed the trains in Madrid. But ETA has no beef with Majorca. Why would ETA bomb Majorca, (an Island) when they can find easier targets inÂ Bilbao, in the Basque Country?
Yesterday we reported:
Majorca sealed off after bombing
Ports and airports on the Spanish island of Majorca have been closed after a bomb at a Civil Guard base there killed two officers.
The measures – which Spain said were meant to “prevent the terrorists from fleeing” – were expected to affect many thousands of tourists.
The bomb blast, in Palmanova, comes a day after a similar attack at a barracks in Burgos, northern Spain.
That left 46 people injured and has been blamed on Basque separatists Eta.
The BBC’s Steve Kingstone in Madrid says Eta, which has been held responsible for more than 820 deaths during its decades-long campaign for an independent homeland in Spain’s Basque region, will again be the focus of police inquiries.
There was no claim of responsibility, but local politicians and police were quick to blame Eta, saying it was an attempt to take lives and cause maximum damage.
* Hmm, any idea why they’re Â so quick to blame ETA?
