Police officers in Madrid successfully disarmed an explosive device that was discovered in a confessional at the Cathedral of La Almudena on Feb. 7, Europa Press reported.
Officials said the device was rudimentary and contained a small amount of explosive material.
Father Jesus Junquera said that he decided to call the police after finding a suspicious bag in a Cathedral confessional, although he initially had no idea that the bag contained an explosive device.
The priest added that he was stunned by the incident and did not have any clue as to who would have left the device in the church.
