A small bomb consisting of a camping gas cylinder combined with gunpowder exploded in Zaragoza Basilica in Spain on Wednesday afternoon. No one was injured and left-wing anarchists against the Bourbon monarchy are being blamed.
The bomb exploded in the central area of the Zaragoza Basilica of our Lady of the PIllar (Basílica de Nuestra Señora del Pilar de Zaragoza) at around 13:50 local time. There were no injuries and no damage to the Baroque church was reported.
Spanish news agency Efe is reporting that police suspect left-wing anarchists in the placing of the home-made device. Reportedly the bomb bore the hallmarks of similar devices used by left-wing groups....
A large cloud of smoke and dust emanated from the explosion, frightening parishioners who were waiting to attend Mass at 14:00. Fortunately the area where the bomb exploded was empty of people at the time....
Police believe that the work is being organized by radical anarchist leaders from Greece and Italy. Information Commissioner General, Enrique Barón says "it is terrorism, pure and simple."

Wouldn’t surprise me if the Spanish government is blaming the leftists instead of the Muslims who’ve been agitating to take over Catholic churches in Spain over the past few years.
Well, a “conservative” party is in charge in Spain now, so I don’t know about that.
Looks to me like made-in-Spain terrorism. Muslim terrorism is intended to cause lots of casualties. This is more like for the 15 minutes of fame!
A European conservative would be called a full-on socialist in the USA. Just saying.
Left wing anarchists against the Bourbon Monarchy?
The King of Spain has very little power, aren’t they living in the wrong century?
Brings back those romantic days of the Spanish Civil War when all the fashionable leftists joined up to burn churches and kill priests. It was like cutting sugar cane for Fidel only more bloody fun.
Some 13,000 Spaniards, both clergy and lay leaders, were killed by the Communists during the Spanish Civil War simply for being practicing Catholics.
It said they were Italians and Greeks, so who knows what century they’re living in? They probably don’t know either.
BTW, the wife of King Juan Carlos, Queen Sophia, is Greek.
