A little more on this:

The bombs are said to be in the province of Tarragona, in the north east of the country. The alert relates to the resort of San Carles de la Rapita, 100 miles southwest of Barcelona.

This all comes in the mist of 2 small bombs that went of on Saturday, in which nobody was injured,

That came only a day after the interior ministry published photos of six suspected ETA activists it believes might be preparing to target tourist interests during the peak summer season.

POLICE evacuated five beaches today in eastern Spain after a bomb warning was received, possibly from Basque separatists, authorities said.

Two calls were received by the Basque newspaper Gara, which often serves as a mouthpiece for the separatist group ETA, the Interior Ministry said.
