Separatists eyed in explosion in Spain

MADRID -- Basque separatist militants are thought to be responsible for a June 10 explosion near an airport in Zaragoza, Spain.

A warning call was made to Gara, a prominent Basque-language newspaper -- the usual calling card of terrorist group Eta -- before the grenade attack, in which one of three such devices went off.

Spanish police disarmed the other two grenades.

Airport officials, who evacuated the passenger terminal before the blast, reported no injuries.

However, according to reports in Gara, the explosion caused some structural damage.

The last attack claimed by Eta was a May 25 car bombing in Madrid that wounded three.
