.- Bishop Jesus Murgui of Mallorca, Spain has expressed his condolences to the family and friends of two police officers who died after the second car bomb in 24 hours exploded in the city of Calvia on the island of Mallorca. The Basque separatist group ETA has been blamed for the attack.
 
In a statement released on Thursday, the bishop expressed his sincere condolences to the victims' family members and at the same time commended “the eternal repose of the officers as well as the quick recovery of the wounded to the Lord of Life.”
 
He also exhorted the Catholic community to pray for those suffering from the attack.  “In response to this act of barbarism, the Diocese of Mallorca reiterates its firm condemnation of terrorism,” Bishop Murgui said.
 
The president of the Bishops’ Conference of Spain, Cardinal Antonio Maria Rouco Varela, and his auxiliary bishops, also condemned the latest ETA attacks, recalling that terrorism is an intrinsically perverse act.
 
Police have stepped up efforts in Mallorca to track down those responsible for the bombings, with check points at the airport and helicopter surveillance in the surrounding areas.
