Spanish authorities said a small bomb had exploded on a tourist beach in Guadalmar on the southern Costa del Sol following a warning call, causing no injuries and little damage. A caller who said he spoke in the name of the Basque separatist group ETA warned fire services in nearby Benalmadena that three bombs would explode, the Interior Ministry said Sunday. The caller said bombs were placed in Guadalmar, Benalmadena and on a highway linking Malaga to its international airport, a ministry spokeswoman said. In July, ETA set off a series of bombs in Spain's northern resorts of Laredo and Noja.
