The return of Basque terror attacks in Spain has sparked widespread condemnation of the separatist group ETA.
After a weekend of attacks inside the Basque country, ETA took its campaign to neighbouring Cantabria. One soldier was killed and another seriously wounded in a car bombing at an army barracks in the town of Santona.
Cantabria is outraged that ETA should take its argument with Madrid across its borders. Its regional leader denounced the bombers, but said ETA’s political wing is equally to blame.
“There is one ETA, the one of the psychopaths who planted the bomb here last night, and others in the Basque country over the weekend. They are killers who belong in prison. But there is another ETA, the one with politicians in the Basque parliament and the town councils,” said the Cantabrian president.
The Santona bomb followed Saturday night attacks in the Basque capital Vitoria and in the town of Ondarroa.
