Police in the Basque region said Thursday they had found a bomb in northern Spain, five days after a car bombing in Madrid that was blamed on the separatist group ETA and killed one person. Nearly 100 kilograms (220 pounds) of explosives were found in a drum near an abandoned car outside the Basque town of Amorebieta, and they were rigged to be used in an attack, a spokesman for the Basque police said. The Basque interior department said the explosives found Thursday were ready for "immediate" use and only lacked a detonator.
