Man badly injured by letter bomb in Spain–radio

MADRID (Reuters) - A man was seriously injured when a
letter bomb exploded as he opened it at his home in the
northwestern city of La Coruna, Spanish state radio said on

Police were investigating the explosion, which shattered
car windows in the street outside, the radio said.

On Tuesday, a metal coffee pot packed with explosives blew
up in the doorway of the Italian Culture Institute in Barcelona
on Tuesday, slightly wounding a policeman.

Later the same day, four bombs exploded near a power
station in Spain's Basque country after a warning from Basque
separatist guerrillas ETA. They caused no damage or injuries.
