A lot of re-iteration in this article, but for one bit of info.
This is regarding the type of explosive used (Goma 2) and ETA's use of it.
It also has some more information on the type of bombs used based on the discovery of an unexploded bomb earlier today.
... another Spanish antiterrorism official said Goma 2, a gelatinous, nitroglycerin-based explosive that is typically used in mining, has been
linked to ETA only rarely since the Spanish authorities began to tightly guard supplies of it in the 1980's.
After those controls were imposed, ETA began to depend mainly on explosives stolen abroad, particularly in France and Germany, including a huge cache
of a dynamite-like explosive known as titadine, the official said.
-The bombs had cellphones as triggers
-The bombs had shrapnel to increase damage
-The detonators found in the myserious white van were of the same type used in the bombs
-ETA continues to deny involvement
Just some food for thought.
