Three Bombs Hit Northern Spain; One Wounded

A bomb explosion wounded a man outside a Spanish courthouse Friday after a warning from armed Basque separatist group ETA, and two home-made bombs blew up in the troubled Basque country, police said. The latest blasts followed two explosions in Spanish seaside resorts Tuesday, wounding 13 people, in what authorities called the start of ETA’s traditional summer bombing campaign aimed at undermining the crucial tourist sector. In Friday’s attack, a bomb went off in the entrance of the courthouse in Estella, Navarre, wounding a young man driving past in a van. Navarre is a northern province claimed by separatists as a part of a greater Basque homeland. Spanish authorities do not consider Navarre part of the Basque country. The bomb exploded after a caller claiming to represent ETA telephoned a warning to a motorway accident and breakdown service, police said. In the early hours of the morning a home-made bomb slightly damaged the front of a local Socialist councilor’s home in Andoain in the Basque country and soon afterwards another bomb exploded outside his party’s social center.
