Fact File
ETA facts
ETA stands for: Euzkadi Ta Askatasuna
That means: Basque fatherland and freedom
About 800 people have died in ETA attacks in 30 years

A car bomb exploded near a hotel in Fuengirola on the Costa Del Sol early on Friday morning.

A British man was seriously injured and three others were also hurt.

Basque group blamed


A second car bomb exploded in nearby Marbella at about lunchtime.

No one has admitted setting off the bombs but a group called ETA is being blamed.

They are a terrorist group called Basque separatists. They want a part of Spain and France known as the Basque region to be allowed to be a separate country.

The Basque people have their own language and culture.
