Bombings at Palma de Mallorca in Spain Kills 2

Written By David D'Angelo on Friday, July 31, 2009 | 7/31/2009

2 police officers had been killed in an explosion on the Spanish resort island of Mallorca. Because of this sudden event authorities have blocked all outgoing flights and ships from leaving the island. The bombing is taught to had been inflicted by the Basque separatist group ETA. It was the second attacked link to the ETA in just 36 hours.

Just this Wednesday, a powerful car bomb Wednesday destroyed a police barracks in the northern Spanish city of Burgos, injuring about 60 people. If these were ETA attacks it would undermine the government stand that ETA had already been severely weakened.

The 50th anniversary of ETA's founding is Friday and the group may be trying to demonstrate with attacks on the two consecutive days before the milestone that it was not in any danger of breaking up.
