MADRID - Several explosions were heard in Madrid on Friday shortly after a phone caller stated that the separatist group ETA had planted bombs in Spain's capital.

At least one explosion happened at a gas station, Spanish media reported.

ETA has been trying to create a separate Basque nation in an armed struggle that has gone on for decades.

Spanish officials initially suspected ETA of being behind the Madrid train bombings of last March, in which dozens were killed. But that bombing was later tied to Muslim extremists.

At least someone (the Basque themselves?) phoned in with a warning and location of the impending bombs, so there was plenty of time to evacuate. If so, maybe they're trying to differentiate themselves from Al Qaeda.

ETA (almost) always calls in advance. Apparently, explosives went off at five gas stations. AFAIK, no one was hurt and there was no significant damage (the explosives were quite small).

Still, at the ETA.
