Bombs on holiday isle; WORLDTODAY.
The government of the Balearic Islands said two low-level explosive devices were placed in the toilets of restaurants yesterday with a third, also a low-powered device, in the underground area of the main square.
No casualties were reported and damage was either non-existent or minimal.
The blasts were blamed on Basque separatist group ETA and came just over a week after the organisation killed two policemen on the island in attacks aimed at bringing fear to tourists.
The Spanish government delegation on the Balearic Islands say they believe the terrorists' objective was not to cause direct damage to people through their actions.
