ETA Ceasefire to End?

June 5, 2007 on 12:15 pm | In country travel information, travel, travel news, travel warnings | Comments Off

ETA, which has been using terrorist tactics as part of their strategy to establish an independent Basque state for over 40 years, has announced their intent to end the ceasefire they had been observing with Spain.  The actions of the ETA have resulted in over 800 deaths during the period.

It is the ETA’s goal to establish a Basque homeland,  a country that is comprised of areas along the border between Spain and France, with both countries ceding area to the proposed state.  Neither France nor Spain has indicated interest in the proposition.

At this point it is impossible to determine whether the statement that the ceasefire will be terminated is posturing or the prelude to more terrorist attacks.  If you plan on traveling in either Spain or France, keep an ear out for potential trouble.
