Written by on March 5, 2021

Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez has taken part in a ceremony to destroy over a thousand weapons seized from the Basque terrorist group ETA.

A steamroller drove over the machine guns, rifles and pistols in a courtyard at the Guardia Civil training college in Duque de Ahumada, Madrid.

The weapons will be melted down and transformed into a monument symbolising the end of ETA, which is accused of killing more than 850 people during it’s 40 year terror campaign which came to an end in 2018.
