Spain's airport authority closed Ibiza airport on one of the country's favorite holiday islands due to a security alert, officials said Saturday. Media reports said there had been warnings to a Basque newspaper. A spokeswoman for the AENA airport authority, which controls Spain's airports, said the airport had been closed to outgoing and incoming flights due to a security alert but would not say if it was a bomb alert. The Web sites of Spanish dailies El Mundo and La Vanguardia said three warnings had been received by Basque newspaper Gara, which violent Basque separatist group ETA often uses as a conduit for bomb warnings.
