Chilean terrorists charged in bombing at Spanish basilica

Catholic World News - November 18, 2013

A Spanish court has charged 2 Chileans with the October bombing of the basilica of Our Lady of Pilar in Zaragoza.

The two defendants, Monica Andrea Caballero Sepulveda and Francisco Javier Solar Dominguez, are associated with a terrorist group that is believed to be responsible for at least one other bombing in a Catholic church. Prosecutors charge that the group was planning further attacks.

The bomb that exploded in Zaragoza did not cause any casualties or extensive damage to the basilica, but forced the evacuation of the building, located on the site where the apostle St. James established a shrine to the Virgin Mary.
