Rebels Attack Killing

SAN SEBASTIAN, Spain () -- Three jailed Basque guerrillas publicly condemned their rebel comrades on Friday for killing a Spanish politician, adding their voices to a national outcry against the separatists.


The three men read a statement at a Basque prison saying that with the killing of 29-year-old Miguel Angel Blanco, the Basque separatist group ETA had in recent days "managed to accumulate more hate than in 38 years of terrorism."


Jose Manuel Soares Gamboa, Luis Gaston and Luis Gorriti, repentant members of the separatist group that was formed in 1959, also denounced ETA's political wing Herri Batasuna.
