Bomb attack in Majorca

#1
From today's Snowmail:

The news of another bomb in Majorca - the second in two weeks at the peak of the holiday season certainly gives us a new lead tonight.

ETA phoned in a warning. Nobody was hurt after a warning was given that the bomb was left in a restaurant on the island. But we're hearing that there may have been up to three different devices planted in different locations.

Police did say they thought the bombers were still at large on the islands after the last attack

Given the obvious logistical difficulties and extra security risks in setting out to bomb an island, the Etarras, if it is indeed them, appear pretty determined to strike the ailing Spanish economy where it hurts the most: its vast tourism sector.

On the surface of it, this represents a high-profile attack by ETA and is, as the article said, likely to impact the Spanish tourism industry.

So cheaper flights to Palma on the cards then.

Top story on C4 at moment on TV.
Not assed to be honest as would still go. PIRA didn't stop me going about my business so ETA are not going to scare me.
No doubt though FO will start knee jerk reaction soon enough.

A bomb in Palma Nova would create £30 million worth of improvements.

A bomb in Palma Nova would create £30 million pounds worth of improvements.
A bomb in Megaruf would hardly be noticed.
