British holidaymakers were warned to be vigilant today after two terrorist bombs exploded in one of Spain's most popular tourist areas.
One UK tourist was hurt in the two explosions and eight people were slightly injured after the bombs went off within minutes of each other on the Costa Blanca.
The blasts were at the Nadal hotel on the Levante beach in Benidorm and at the Hotel Residencia Bahia in central Alicante.
Police had earlier evacuated the areas after a telephone caller claiming to represent the Basque terrorist group Eta told the Basque newspaper Gara the explosions would take place at 12.30pm local time.
The Foreign Office later confirmed that one British female was injured in the Alicante blast and was released from hospital after having stitches to a small wound.

There must be something more going on here. I can confirm from your link to the 2015 version of the article that Ellie Carr, 20, was apparently in both the 2003 and the 2015 article about the same event. Maybe a bombing really did happen today, and there was little to know info, so the person who created the article today stole info from the 2003 article; which could be why the article got pulled off.
