>> Basque Separatists Group ETA has reportedly disbanded, ending a 50 year guerilla campaign. ETA led an unsuccessful push for an independent state in the Basque region of northern Spain and southern France. About 850 people were killed altogether in the violence. In Madrid seen of some ETA attacks there was a cautious welcome.
> ETA announced its disillusion in a letter published by an online newspaper on Wednesday. It wasn't out of the blue, the group apologized in April to its victims and their relatives.
It declared a cease-fire back in 2011, bringing western Europe's last major armed insurgency to a close. The letter said that although ETA is now consigned to history, the drive for Basque independence would go on. Polls vary, though. A November one put support for Basque independence at just 14%.
