Five bombs have exploded in northern Spain causing damage but no injuries, officials said.

A person, claiming to be speaking on behalf of Basque separatist group Eta, had phoned in warnings about four of the bombs.

The first detonated without warning around 5am (0300 GMT) outside a bank in the Basque town of Getxo, damaging a cash dispenser and breaking windows, the regional Interior Ministry said in Bilbao.

Basque separatists have been conducting terrorism long in Spain long before the Spanish Govt chickened out with Al-Queida.

The Basques are cold-war holdovers like FARC, the IRA and PLO/Fatah...

One of the old USSR's many 'Wars of National Liberation'....

Nope - the Basque separatists make folks like Louisiana_Carry look moderate.

The wiki article says their philosophy is Marxism-Leninism.
Louisiana_Carry is an anarcho-capitalist, which places him further down the libertarian spectrum than even me, ARFcom's libertarian irritant extraordinaire.

I'm not talking so much about the claimed political philosophy, but the separatist, regional bend in general.

Ironically, the Confederacy under which Lousiana fought was far more nationalist and dismissive of individual rights than the US.

Some folks in the US may have an emotional fondness for the Confederacy, but none are actual out committing terrorist acts to achieve such an end.

His point is still valid. Spain gave into a terrorist group. It can't help but to encourage any other terrorist group attacking Spain.
