Reuters is reporting 3-4 explosions in Madrid after threats were made to a radio station. Explosions were at gas stations and no fatalities have been reported. ETA claims responsibility.

Typical of CNN not to get it right...

ETA is considered a terrorist group in most of spain (e.g. not the bit its fighting for)
Easy Mr Happy. To be fair to CNN, "by Spain" alludes to the Spanish Government’s categorisation of ETA, not the geo/lingo/depth of tan/height up a mountain criteria.

CNN's stating of the obvious :
ETA is considered a terrorist group by Spain
should have been supported by a brief geography lesson for the audience at home, as in:

show them where Spain is! :D

Hope there are still no casualties.

There was a CNN map published a longtime back showing Germany labelled as Poland and Switzerland as Germany. It was around 9/11 and they were attempting to educate as you've said....

who teaches the teachers?
