Twenty people were injured after Basque separatists set off a bomb yesterday at Spain's Opus Dei run University of Navarra.
Catholic News Agency reports around 11.00am a car bomb exploded at a parking lot located between the main building and the Library of Humanities, injuring 21 people and destroying 20 vehicles.
"There were other small explosions after the fire set off by the fuel tanks in the parked cars nearby," Bernardino Leon, a University of Navarra professor, told the Antena 3 TV channel.
Valencia Cardinal Agustin García-Gasco, condemned the bombing describing it as "an act of abject inhumanity".
"I express my deepest solidarity to this great community of students and my utmost repudiation of the terrorists' logic," he said on Thursday.
"This shows another expression of ETA's barbarism and culture of death," Cardinal García-Gasco said in a statement released to also express solidarity with the University's Supreme Chancellor and Opus Dei Prelate, Bishop Javier Echeverría.
"By attacking the University of Navarra, terrorists show where they stand: at the opposite of any human good," the cardinal concluded.
Ángel Gómez-Montoro, the rector of the University, reacted to the attack by saying, "we have decided to go back to normality as soon as possible," and "we will do it without fear or anger."
"This is the time to remember the importance of forgiveness, and we want to call the terrorists to stop making so many people suffer," he stressed.
