Basque Rebels Admit to Rash of Killings

November 20, 2000|From Times Wire Reports

The Basque separatist group ETA has claimed responsibility for killing 10 people since the end of July and lashed out at politicians and journalists, accusing them of hampering independence efforts. In a statement published by two pro-independence Basque newspapers, the ETA also said it was behind 17 bombing and shooting attacks during the nearly four-month period. The ETA, or Basque Homeland and Freedom, has admitted killing about 800 people since launching its campaign in 1968 for Basque independence from Spain and France.
