Car bomb at the University of Navarre

This is just horrible: a little over an hour ago, a car bomb exploded at the University of Navarre.

It's bad enough that it's an educational institution under assault; but I'm also concerned because the University of Navarre, an Opus Dei undertaking, is home to an international student body, including Filipinos.

News excerpt from Reuters:

A car bomb exploded in a car park near the University of Navarre in the northern Spanish city of Pamplona Thursday, slightly injuring several people, officials said.

No telephone warning was received before the bomb exploded at about 11 a.m. local time (6 a.m. EDT), smashing windows in a university building and damaging nearby cars, officials and witnesses said.

As of last report, 17 people were injured. Please pray for them.
