BILBAO — A bomb thought to be planted by Basque terrorist group ETA explodes at a transport firm without causing injuries.

The blast happened at the offices of Azkar in the Basque town of Lazkao at about 3am.

A small device was planted near a wall, damaging lights in some houses nearby, police said.

The same company was bombed in June 2003 by ETA.

In that attack, three lorries were damaged.

The company transports large packets across Spain and Portugal and has nearly 4,000 workers.
 
ETA is conducting an extortion campaign against Basque companies to force them to pay what it calls a "revolutionary tax".
