    Background: ARRIGORRIAGA, NORTHERN SPAIN

    In Spain, a memorial plaque honouring a former ETA (Basque separatist) leader has been unveiled in his home village of Arrigorriaga. ETA Commander Argala, his nom de guerre, was killed four years ago by a spanish counter-insurgency group in the south of France. Previously, villagers had put up a plaque to his memory in a village square. Civil Guards took it down. This time, hundreds of ETA supporters went to the unveiling, then moved to a memorial service. Civil Guards were present at the unveiling, but made no moves to interrupt. Both parts of the ceremony went off without any reported disturbances, and the plaque was not removed. Separatists are waiting to see if any belated action is taken against it.
