ETA To End Ceasefire
Via the BBC: Eta to end ceasefire with Spain
The Basque separatist group Eta says its ceasefire with the Spanish government will end at midnight.
Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero condemned Eta’s move.
“Eta’s decision goes totally in the opposite direction of the path that Basque and Spanish society want, the path of peace,” he said.
Eta declared a “permanent” ceasefire in March 2006, and had insisted it still held despite a bomb that killed two people at Madrid airport in December.
Interesting, as I had at one point thought that 9/11 and the 7/11 Madrid bombing might have taken the political viability out of political violence for ETA.
