Yeah, heard it too

Seems like ETA.

[Edit]

Skynews have just confirmed it, ETA gave a warning

Some info on ETA

news.bbc.co.uk...



For more than three decades the armed organisation Eta has waged a bloody campaign for independence for the seven regions in northern Spain and south-west France that Basque separatists claim as their own.

Euskadi Ta Azkatasuna, Eta, whose name stands for Basque Homeland and Freedom, first emerged in the 1960s as a student resistance movement bitterly opposed to General Franco's repressive military dictatorship.

Under Franco the Basque language was banned, their distinctive culture suppressed, and intellectuals imprisoned and tortured for their political and cultural beliefs.

The Basque country saw some of the fiercest resistance to Franco. His death in 1975 changed all that, and the transition to democracy brought the region of two million people home rule.

That is bad. This is in violation of their "partial cease fire" that they agreed to back in June.

Well the Spanish government have sent a team to London, so ETA is probably attacking while the government is helping the UK

I live in Spain...and i tell you, the government here in Cataluña have allegedly done a deal with ETA guaranteing that they wont act in Cataluña.

The rest of the government here was, to say the least, a little narked.

I cant understand what type of deal they did as they majority of the ETA´s cross the frontier in the pyrenees between France and Cataluña.

I dont really believe in the "PARTIAL CEASEFIRE" theory, it just gives the terrorists more time to regroup, rearm and reorganise after the blows the police have dealt them here in the recents months along with the help of the French police.

I cannot say anything in regards as to what exactly the "agreement was, All i can do is report what has been in the news.
I myself was in Madrid back in 82 less than a block away from the telephone exchange. The blast nearly blew me and my friends off of our feet!
I definately have no trust in this group says.
