Car bomb; Spain barracks, wounding 46
MADRID - A car bomb exploded outside a Civil Guard barracks in the northern Spanish city of Burgos early on Wednesday, injuring 46 people in an attack authorities blamed on Basque separatist rebels ETA.
The blast at around 4 a.m. (10 p.m. ET) ripped away most of the outer wall of the multi-storey barracks in one of the biggest attacks for some time by ETA, whose ranks have been decimated by arrests.
"It's almost a miracle no one was hurt more seriously," an emergency services spokesman said, adding that the barracks had been evacuated and fire fighters were going through the building.
