Car bomb injures dozens in Spain

Amateur video captures the aftermath of a car bomb that exploded in the Spanish city of Burgos early on Wednesday.

The bomb exploded outside a Civil Guard barracks in the northern city of Burgos slightly injuring 46 people, an emergency services spokesman said.Part of the barracks facade collapsed into the street when the bomb went off around 4.30 a.m. (0230 GMT).

A spokeswoman for the Civil Guard, Spain's paramilitary police force, said the attack was probably carried out by Basque separatist rebels ETA. Most of the injuries were cuts and bruises and no one was in a serious condition, although 38 had been transferred to hospital in the historic cathedral town, according to the emergency services spokesman.
