Thousands rally in Spain for release of Basque separatists

Thousands took to the streets of San Sebastian in northern Spain on Saturday to call for the release of Arnaldo Otegi, the jailed head of the Basque independence Sortu party. Otegi, 57, is a former member of the armed separatist group ETA, which is blamed for more than 800 killings in a four-decade campaign to create a Basque homeland in northern Spain and southwestern France. More than 10,000 demonstrators marched behind a large Basque-language banner that read, “Free Arnaldo and Rafa”, referring to Rafa Diez, the head of the Basque pro-independence trade union LAB, according to an AFP photographer at the scene.
