SPECIAL REPORT

ESTELLA, Spain (CNN) -- One person has been slightly injured after a bomb exploded near a courthouse in northern Spain, according to local authorities.

Shortly before Friday's blast in Estella, 30 miles (48 km) southwest of Pamplona in Navarra province, officials said they received a telephone call from the Basque separatist group, ETA, about the location of the package bomb.

Spanish authorities blame ETA for two bomb blasts in Spanish beach resorts earlier this week that wounded 10 people, including four police officers.

Prime Minister Jose Maria Aznar condemned Tuesday's bombs. "It's obvious that this is about trying to introduce what we could call the annual quota of fear in Spaniards' summer break, which every year they try to do," he said.

On July 13, Spanish police deactivated a powerful bomb placed by the Basque separatist group in a Pamplona hotel that was filled with visitors attending the annual San Fermin Fiesta which includes the famed running of the bulls. No one was injured.

ETA has claimed responsibility or has been blamed for more than 800 killings during a 35-year campaign for the Basque region's independence.
