SPANIARDS DENOUNCE MALLORCA BOMBING
A bomb exploded under a police car on the Spanish Mediterranean island of Mallorca on Thursday, killing two officers, in the second strike on security forces in two days. Spaniards on the streets of Madrid have been quick to condemn Thursday's bomb attack in Mallorca that claimed the lives of two police officers. Spain's government and police blamed both attacks on ETA, the Basque separatist group, which on Friday marks the 50th anniversary of its founding and is seeking to show that it is still in business after a crackdown by Spanish and French police. For several hours after the blast, Spanish authorities blocked planes and ships from leaving the island, which is popular with British and German tourists, as they hunted for the bombers. Police in Mallorca detonated a second device found attached to the underside of a vehicle belonging to the Guardia Civil, Spain's paramilitary police.
