Bomb explodes on Spanish island of Mallorca
The attack happened just over a week after the Basque separatist group ETA killed two police officers on the island. Press reports said officers were searching the popular beach-front area Sunday for a possible third bomb.
The attack was staged just hours after ETA published a statement claiming responsibly for four other bombings this summer that killed three people and injured dozens more.
State broadcaster TVE said on its late afternoon news broadcast that the bomb that blew was in a beach bag hidden in the ceiling of a women's toilet in the restaurant, and the second device was also found in a beach-side eatery.
El Pais newspaper said Sunday's blast came after the restaurants had been evacuated following two phone calls made to a taxi company in the Basque region. The caller, who said he was calling on ETA's behalf, warned of the bombs.
