A car bomb exploded outside a police station in Spain's northern Basque region early Sunday, causing major damage and injuring 10 people, hours after another explosion in the regional capital, officials said. Police blamed armed separatist group ETA, which has been fighting since 1968 for an independent Basque state in northern Spain and western France. The bombings occurred three days after a Spanish court banned a pro-independence Basque political party for having ETA links. The first car bomb exploded next to the headquarters of the Caja Vital Kutxa bank on the outskirts of the Basque regional capital, Vitoria, a regional Interior Ministry official said. It caused damage, but no one was reported injured. Several hours later, another car bomb detonated outside a police station in the port town of Ondarroa, according to another regional ministry official. Three police officers and seven civilians were injured, treated mostly for cuts and hearing problems.
