Majorca barracks blast kills two

At least two Civil Guard officers have been killed by a car bomb blast outside a barracks in the west of the Spanish island of Majorca, officials say.

The vehicle exploded in Palmanova shortly before 1400 (1200 GMT).

Dave Wilkinson, who was having lunch at a restaurant in the area at the time, told the BBC that he had heard a loud explosion and seen a black plume of smoke rising.
