Three small bombs exploded in the Spanish city of Barcelona early yesterday and police were deactivating another one, a local government spokesman said. No one was hurt by the bombs, which were left outside temporary employment offices, and a police spokesman declined to speculate who could have planted the devices. The three explosions occurred in calles Casanova 244, Llacuna 161 and Gran Via 200, while the fourth was in Calle Aribau 282. Police cordoned off the Calles Aribau and Gran Via and did not let workers enter the buildings in case there were more bombs. At the time of going to press, nobody had claimed responsibility for the bombs. The blasts happened a day after the radical Marxist group GRAPO claimed responsibility for last month's attempt to blow up a security van (in which two security guards died) and for planting a number of bombs in employment agencies and political party offices. GRAPO was active in the late 1970s and was blamed for dozens of assassinations in a bid to create a Marxist state.
