Separatist movement calls it quits

After 40 years of trying for independence, the ETA movement is declaring a cease fire, according to reports.
ETA, those reports say, will continue to seek autonomy via politics instead of violence -- after some 800 killings.
The end of the conflict means some of the secrets of the separatist movement are being made public.
One of the seemingly strange rules governing ETA was that every member was ordered to have at least two back doors in his home.
Turned out it wasn't such a strange dictum after all: They just didn't want, in case of a raid by the Spanish police, to get caught with all their Basques in one exit.
