BILBAO — Four bombs believed to have been planted by ETA have exploded near a electricity station.

Police said there were no injuries after the blasts at 2.10pm at Boroa, in Amorebieta in the Basque Country.

The emergency services received a warning call at 1.30pm saying that four devices were installed in the centre of Amorebieta.

At the same time, the Basque daily 'Gara' received a warning call about the bombs, the usual method ETA uses to alert the authorities to an imminent attack.

Police had time to evacuate the centre of the time before the bombs went off.

The Basque terrorist organisation has failed to kill any targets for over two years.

The latest attack comes after hardline elements in the organisation expelled six members who had called for peace talks.

The Socialist government of Spanish prime minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero has called for dialogue with ETA as long as they end their armed struggle.

In May, the Spanish parliament backed a move for talks with ETA once they had renounced attacks.
