Spain: explosive device detonates outside conservative political party office, no injuries

MADRID — Police say an explosive device detonated outside an office of Spain’s conservative Popular Party in a town in the northwest Galicia region, shattering windows but causing no casualties.

Eduardo Rodriguez, local police chief in the town Ordes, said there was no claim of responsibility. He said there was no immediate suspicion the explosion was the work of the Basque separatist group ETA, which called a ceasefire in January.

Rodriguez said the blast around 5 a.m. (0300 GMT) broke windows in the Popular Party headquarters and charred the facade, and also broke windows in neighbouring buildings.

Ordes is a village of 13,000 people.

Rodriguez said a firebomb was set off outside the same building about six or seven years ago.
