VITTORIA, Spain (Nov 23) – The Basque regional police force (La Ertzaintza) have recovered the remains of a bomb which exploded at the El Coto bodegas in the town of Oyón (Álava) at around 3pm on Saturday.

According to an Interior ministry source, the bomb was made using around half a kilo of chloratite and amosal, and was similar to one used at a bodega in Haro (La Rioja) on the 15th November.

The device was found yesterday after a call in the name of ETA to the offices of the Gara newspaper in Vitoria.

Also found at the scene were remains of ETA propaganda calling for a boycott on those companies that refuse to pay the so-called revolutionary taxes.

Similar remains were found at the scene of bomb attacks on the BH bicycle factory in Vitoria at the weekend, and at the La Rioja bodega last week, which was originally dismissed as a butane gas cannister explosion.
