EuroNews, Reuters, UK Times, ETC- Northern Spain- Opus Dei founded Navarre university suffers sixth attack by Spanish Separatistys (ETA)

(Catholic Watchdog South Africa; c.f. EuroNews (Secular)30/10/08; Reuters (Secular) 30/10/08; International Herald and Tribune (Secular) 30/10/08)

Founded by the founder of Opus Dei, Josemaria Escriva' about 56 years ago- The Navaree university, in the region bordering France, has for the sixth time suffered a bomb attack from Spanish separatists- the Basque group ETA.

The car bomb killed no one, but injured between 17 and 22 people- mostly with flying shards of glass. Smoke was seen lighting the air like ashes from a volcano, or more like rising smoke from a steam train. Students Left the building, notably some were phoning others as they evacuated from the canvas.

An unclear phone call was made to authorities before the blast, which caused them to redirect traffic, however they estimated the location of the attack incorrectly, evacuating the wrong university- Vitoria. This follows recent busting of an ETA cell, which police had claimed were prepared for a terrorist strike.
