Spain's Ibiza airport evacuated after bomb alert
Saturday, June 30, 2007
Police have detonated a suspicious package in the airport of Ibiza, (Spain), which had been evacuated after a newspaper received a bomb threat made in the name of Basque separatist group ETA. About 3,000 tourists were evacuated from the airport, and hundreds of flights have either been delayed or cancelled.
Spain has been on a heightened alert since ETA declared an end to a unilateral ceasefire on June 5.
Ibiza is a very popular tourist destination, especially due to its legendary nightlife. Thousands of people flood in during the summer for the big summer club nights.
