Spanish term or phrase:artefacto
ETA hace estallar un artefacto en un hotel de Denia...
... un artefacto colocado por la ETA...
I found this expressions in a news article in El Pais and I was wondering if artefacto in this sense simply is a synonyme for "bomb" or if there is something more to it. In Collins I found that it can also main fixture or electronic appliance, so could it be that the ETA has hidden a bomb in some electronic appliance? What do you think? Thank you very much for your support
