The factory of the Spanish bike manufacturer BH has been the target of a bomb attack, Basque news channel Euskal Irrati Telebista reported. A small explosive device detonated at the factory located in the Basque city of Vitoria-Gasteiz on Saturday night, causing minor damage on the company's entrance door and facade.
The attack has been attributed to Basque separatist mouvement ETA, who has been seeking independence from Spain since the 1960's, since BH bikes are owned by a Spanish company, and the other bike manufacturer located in the Basque region, Orbea, sponsors a Basque team, Euskaltel-Euskadi.
