Spanish media: small bomb explodes in Mallorca

MADRID — Spanish media say a small bomb has exploded in a restaurant on the island of Mallorca after a telephone warning from Basque separatist group ETA, and that no one was hurt in the blast.

The attack was staged just hours after ETA published a statement claiming responsibly for four other bombings that killed three people and injured dozens this summer.

El Pais newspaper says Sunday's blast left no one injured, as the restaurant was evacuated after a taxi company in the Basque region received two warning phone calls from a person claiming to represent ETA.

The newspaper says the bomb had been left in a beach bag at the restaurant on the Can Pere Antoni beachfront of the island's capital Palma de Mallorca.
