SAINT SEBASTIAN - A suspicious package that was spotted under the car of Socialist municipal counsellor in the Spanish Basque country turned out to be a fake bomb, the Basque interior ministry said.

A Basque interior ministry said: "It's a fake bomb containing no explosives".

But he could not specify whether police suspected militants of the Basque separatist group ETA.

The counsellor had bodyguards who noticed the suspicious package under the car parked in the centre of the city of Eibar in northern Spain.

Police found a black case containing only cables.

ETA militants have killed members of Spain's Socialist and conservative Popular Party in the past.
