Zaragoza cathedral blast may have been 'violent anarchist movement', say police
03 October 2013 @ 10:44

A BOMB scare in a cathedral in Zaragoza led to the entire building and neighbouring square being evacuated yesterday (Wednesday) after an explosion went off.

Investigations showed the device in side the Basilica del Pilar was a camping gas bottle, but it is believed to have been planted by radical left-wing activists.

Police believe they may be anarchists linked to similar Italian and Greek organisations, members of which have been found in Spain and who habitually preach and incite violence 'at its maximum expression'.

An 'insurrectionist anarchism' movement in Greece is said to be rife at present and are believed to be infiltrating – as a cover - otherwise harmless dissident groups whose activities are completely unrelated, and who are unaware of the extremists' presence.

Nobody was injured in the blast – even though the cathedral was open to the public at the time – but it was not due to be opened until this morning as it was still full of smoke.
