Terrorism At the moment, there is a general threat from terrorism in Spain. Attacks could be indiscriminate, including in places frequented by expatriates and foreign travellers. The Basque separatist group ETA has been less active in recent years and no attacks have been reported since 2009; in 2011 they declared a new ceasefire.
