ETA TRIES TO KILL AGAIN: the bodyguard of a Socialist councilman has been seriously injured after a bomb in his car exploded (could have been a car bomb that went off, the Spanish media is reporting). This comes after almost the entire leadership of Batasuna, Eta's banned political wing, were arrested during a meeting last week. Its mouthpiece, the Basque newspaper Gara, described the arrests as "a declaration of war".
