Small bomb closes Ibiza airport

Police in Spain have carried out a controlled explosion on a suspicious package at Ibiza airport.

The airport had been evacuated beforehand and was closed to incoming and outgoing flights.

The police were acting on a telphone warning from the Basque separatist movement ETA, made to the Gara newspaper.  ETA has regularly used the newspaper to issue bomb warnings.

The incident comes weeks after ETA called off its ceasefire with the Spanish government.
