MADRID - Basque terrorist group ETA detonated a bomb in Elgoibar, Guipúzcoa at 3.25am Sunday morning, targeting the offices of the local Socialist party. No one was injured in the blast.

The device, which was made up of three kilos of explosives, caused damage to the buildings in the street where it was left, as well as several parked cars. Having received a warning, police cleared the area and made megaphone announcements to residents to open their windows and lower the blinds in order to minimize damage from the blast.

Socialist sources have said that the offices have suffered six attacks in the past, including a petrol bombing.

The attack was the second by the terrorist group in just 72 hours, after a five-kilo device was detonated in the Bilbao neighbourhood of La Peña on Thursday, causing minor injuries to seven police officers who were evacuating the area.
