article imageHoliday Island Ibiza On Terror Alert After Bomb Scare

By Michelle Duffy     Jul 1, 2007 in World
Reuters in Madrid have confirmed that the main airport in the tiny country of Ibiza was evacuated last night after a report of a bomb in the building. The scare caused untold chaos in the busy airport after the terror attack at Glasgow yesterday
The global news agency have reported that the airport in Ibiza was on serious alert after it was reported that there was a bomb somewhere in the area.
Local news paper reporters have told outsiders that the Interior Ministry for the Island has strictly denied that there was a controlled explosion in the area of the airport. So far, no one was available for comment.
It is thought that it was local media who distributed information about a suspect bomb within the building. The Gara newspaper which is used as a main source of media rumour amongst the armed separatist guerrillas ETA, was said to have received a phone call about a bomb in Ibiza which was also mentioned on the Gara news website.
It is thought that the caller who made the accusations was a representative of the ETA, it is common practise of the militant group. It is also thought that the tiny Island has been used as a target as the holiday season starts and where many Brits and other Europeans would be now taking their summer breaks.
Thousands of holidaymaker flights have since been diverted from the airport due to the scare.
The Island has been under threat of a terror attack since the announcement from the Basque rebel group on the 5th of June this year on calling off their 15 month old ceasefire.
The group where responsible for bombing the airport in Madrid in December last year, effectively breaking the agreement anyway.
