Basque separatists ETA says will disarm on April 8 - BBC



(Reuters) - Basque separatist group ETA said it will fully disarm on April 8 after the Basque parliament asked it to disarm as soon as possible, the BBC reported, citing a letter from ETA.


The group said its members will hand over their weapons on Saturday, but added that "the enemies of peace" might block the process. http://bbc.in/2o2HRDr


ETA declared the end of its 40-year bid to establish an independent Basque state in northern Spain and southern France in 2011 but has handed over only part of its weapons cache to authorities.
