Basque group ETA gives authorities list of weapons caches

Post  Lamplighter on Sat Apr 08, 2017 7:03 pm

PARIS (AP) — The Basque separatist group ETA has formally given French authorities a list of eight locations of its caches of weapons, ammunition and explosives in a crucial move toward disarmament. The Spanish government called on the rebels to "ask forgiveness from its victims and disappear."

French Interior Minister Matthias Fekl said a police operation was underway Saturday to find and search the arms caches. "It's a great step, an unquestionably important day," Fekl said. Inactive for more than five years, ETA had said it would hand over its arms, a historic step following a 43-year violent campaign that claimed 829 lives, mostly in Spain.

Disarmament is the second-to-last step demanded by France and Spain, which want ETA to formally disband. The organization hasn't said whether it would. Spain "will not make any evaluation of the handing over of weapons today by ETA until they have been analyzed by French authorities and justice," Interior Minister Juan Ignacio Zoido said in a televised statement.

"The government will not alter its position: Terrorists cannot hope to receive any special treatment from the government nor immunity for their crimes," the minister said. Spain called on the ETA to "announce its definitive dissolution, ask forgiveness from its victims and disappear."

All those deaths, and they achieved nothing.

Just more terrorists pretending to have a noble cause, Lily. It should have stopped the minute Franco died, and Spain returned to democracy and the ballot box.
