An anarchist group has targeted prominent Roman Catholics in Spain using bombs hidden in boxes of sex toys.
Two devices were sent by the anti-clerical Pro Sex Toys group, according to Spain's EFE News One agency, concealed amidst vibrators.
They targeted the archbishop of Pamplona, Francisco Perez, and the headteacher of a private school belonging to the ultra-conservative Legionnaires of Christ movement in Madrid.
One bomb exploded in a postal sorting office, leaving a member of staff with slight injuries.
"Please accept our apologies," the group said in an email sent to an anarchist website at the beginning of last month. "Next time we won't fail."
The archbishop told EFE that he vaguely recalled receiving a package that contained powder that police removed. "We didn't give it much importance, but later it was said to be a bomb," he said.
The same group is believed to be behind a number of other attempted bombings.
Recently a bomb inside a pressure cooker left outside a public prosecutor's office was detonated by bomb squad officers.
Another bomb containing a gas canister, shrapnel and explosive powder planted in Madrid's Almudena Cathedral also failed to explode.
The anarchists, who use other names such as the Artisans Club for New Uses for Coffee, claimed to have made a bomb out of an espresso coffee machine packed with gunpowder and shrapnel that was planted at a bank branch, though they did not reveal where.
Police in Spain believe the group probably only has five members, but authorities have expressed concern that extremist groups could take advantage of widespread disillusionment as unemployment in the country hits 26 percent.

Is nothing sacred?
Not to the Left. This is bizarre and dangerous.
Now there is something you don't see everyday.
Recently a bomb inside a pressure cooker left outside a public prosecutor’s office was detonated by bomb squad officers.
Was there a sale on pressure cookers recently. /s
Or maybe these groups are working from the same play book,
Barney Frank wants one.... for research
so does a DUer named Ben Burch
Sounds like a more militant FEMEN type group.
I must have missed something. How are “prominment Roman Catholics” responsible for 26% unemployment?
The true face of homo-fascism. Yes, even here in the US.
Hi Alex- this is too bizarre. It reads like a onion satire site. Very dark and weird. Any other sources for this “dark joke.” Strange.
Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain — he means NOTHING!
Thanks for the ‘toon; it’s great.
“Anarchist group.” < /snurk>
Find another way. kapish?
Chick is a banned subject. Do not mention it at all.
Angry radicals who hate the Catholic church. Let me guess, could it be .... gays?
I won't expect so.
I know nothing about this Seinfeld thing other than it was another TV show I never saw, so I don't get the connection to the Gahan Wilson cartoon. I first saw it in a Playboy magazine a few decades ago.
It’s known as “the show about nothing.”
Okay I get it. I really didn’t know anything about it. I’ve missed decades of TV crap.. (On 2nd thought, no I guess I didn’t miss it.)
