Madrid Bombing Raises ETA Concerns
Posted on Dec 30, 2006
At least four people were injured when a car bomb exploded at the Madrid airport on Saturday. If the separatist group ETA is responsible, as the Spanish government has charged, the blast would signal the end of a cease-fire that began in March.
Two police officers who were examining the vehicle parked close to terminal four were among those injured.
The government said Basque separatist group ETA had carried out the attack—ending a ceasefire declared in March.
The ETA ceasefire came after four decades of violence aimed at creating an independent Basque state in the north of the country.
