ETA calls truce

The Basque separatist group ETA has called a permanent ceasefire.

The group said the truce would be ‘internationally verifiable’ in a statement sent to the press.

The Spanish government, however, has been cautious about ETA’s earlier ceasefire claims.

ETA has been waging its campaign for the Basque independence since 1968, which led to over 800 deaths.

It halted armed attacks last year after been severely weakened by the Spanish and French security services.
