Basque group ETA vows to put arsenal 'out of use'

The Basque group ETA announced Saturday it would put its arsenal of weapons "out of operational use" in a first step by the considerably weakened separatist group towards an historic disarmament. More than two years after announcing a "definitive end to armed activity", the gestures by western Europe's last major violent separatist movement to officially disarm have been met with shrugs in Spain, which wants the group to disband without condition.

Spain PM owes 'nothing' to ETA for disarmament gesture

Spain's Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy Wednesday rejected calls to respond to a disarmament pledge by the Basque separatist group ETA. Rajoy insisted the group disband unconditionally despite its pledge last week, in response to questions from Basque politicians in parliament. "We do not have to give them anything in return for disbanding," Rajoy said during a state of the nation debate. International monitors last week said they had overseen the decommissioning of a small cache of weapons by the group, but Rajoy's government shrugged off the claim.
