Car Bomb outside Spanish Police Barracks; ETA claimed

Car bomb explodes outside Spanish police barracks

A car bomb exploded Friday outside a barracks of Spain's paramilitary Guardia Civil in the northern Basque town of Durango, lightly wounding two guardsmen, the country's road assistance...

Cadena Ser radio called the explosion the "first attack by ETA" since the armed Basque separatist group officially called off its 15-month ceasefire on June 5, although no Spanish media had reported an ETA claim to the bomb attack.

A second car exploded one hour later in a neighboring town without causing injuries, according Basque police, who speculated it may have been the vehicle used by the bombers to escape.
