SO TELL US, ZAPATERO, how is that cease-fire going?

An off duty Basque regional policeman has discovered an ETA arms cache in a mountainous area close to Amorebieta in Vizcaya. He made the find by chance as he was walking in the mountains.

The police say the cache was only set up in the last few days and consisted of 50 kilos of chemicals used to make explosives. There was a buried large plastic container with Ammonium Nitrate and Aluminium powder. There were also some detonators.

The security services are said to be concerned by the find and think that ETA had brought the material in from France where it was probably stolen.
