JUST weeks after ETA announced their ceasefire a bomb has exploded in the Basque region.
According to police a small explosive device was detonated in an industrial area on the outskirts of Vitoria, the Basque capital, causing minor damage to nearby buildings but no injuries.
Police are still investigating the explosion but officials say the blast early this morning resembled street violence usually associated with supporters of the separatist group ETA.
Over the past 40 years ETA’s campaign for a separate Basque state has led to more than 820 deaths.
Separatist group is an euphemism. ETA is a terrorist group, which is quite different.
Leave it out, John! The Basques were violently suppressed under Franco’s fascists. They just want to be left alone to wear their large caps.
