Madrid, the capital of Spain has had 5 bombs set off. Although these bombs did not injure anyone and were of small damage, it is a significance event
since the Madrid train bombs a few months ago. Eta were the terror group that claimed responsibility.
Madrid rocked by bomb blasts
Five explosions have rocked Madrid after Basque terror group Eta threatened bombings in the Spanish capital.
A petrol filling station was one of the targets but initial reports said the explosions were by "low potency" bombs.
There were no reports of injuries.
Eta, seeking independence for the Basque region of north-west Spain, had warned five bombs had been placed in the Madrid area and were set to explode
at 1730 GMT, Basque newspaper Gara reported on its Web site .
Eta, which has not launched a major attack in months, regularly uses Gara to announce impending attacks.
Almost 200 people were killed in co-ordinated bomb attacks on trains in Madrid in May.
The attacks were blamed on al-Qaida linked terrorists.

What is the President of spain going to do? Will he ignore this and claim it is minor or will he tighten up security more than ever? Will Eta be a
threat locally in Spain or will this just add more motivation to the war on terror.
I believe the war on terror will never end. Everyone here knows the conspiracies behind it.
