ETA declares Catalonia ceasefire

The militant Basque separatist group Eta has declared a ceasefire for the Spanish region of Catalonia. Eta said it had suspended “armed actions” in Catalonia as of 1 January 2004 in order to strengthen ties between the Basque and Catalan people. The news, broadcast by regional media stations, comes weeks after Eta said it was extending its campaign against tourist targets in Spain. Eta has killed more than 800 people in its campaign since the late 1960s. Catalunya Radio broadcast a statement from Eta on Wednesday which said the group “had ceased all its activities in the region as of 1 January, 2004 with the aim of uniting ties between the Basque and Catalan peoples on the basis of respect, non-interference and solidarity”.
