At least three people were injured when a bomb exploded in one of the multi-storey car parks of Madrid's Barajas airport on Saturday, media reports said.

An anonymous caller had warned the emergency services 30 minutes ahead of the explosion, reports said.

Terminal 4 of the airport had been evacuated after the telephone warning. The injured were said to be three policemen checking a suspicious vehicle.

Though no one has claimed responsibility for the attack, there were speculations regarding the role of the Basque separatist terrorist group ETA.

ETA had announced a "lasting ceasefire" on March 22 but repeatedly threatened to resume its terrorist activities in recent weeks.
