A huge explosion, which was heard throughout the small town of Gaucín in the early hours of the morning, has completely destryoed the local branch of the bank Unicaja.
This was not a terrorist attack, but an attempt by some rather inept thieves to rob the ATM in the entrance. Their idea seems to have been to fill the ATM with gas and open it up. However, it appears they rather overdid things and ended up leaving empty-handed.
The outer door of the bank was propelled 15 metres through the air and the whole bank was destroyed both inside and out. Experts were concerned that the structure of the building, and surrounding properties, could have been damaged, such was the extent of the blast, and they have been carrying out inspections.
