Guardia Civil rescues former ETA terrorists stuck in snow

GUARDIA Civil officers called out to rescue two busloads of tourists trapped by snow found out they were a group of former ETA terrorists who had all been in prison.

The ex-convicts had become stuck on the highway between Beruete, where they had set off from, and Lecumberri, in the land-locked northern region of Navarra on Saturday evening, police have just confirmed.

They called the 112 emergency hotline at around 20.30hrs, when the temperature had dropped to -2ºC but felt more like -5ºC and it was already dark.

Emergency services told the callers they would have to wait until the highway had been cleared before they could be rescued.

The group immediately rang the Guardia Civil next, because they were 'desperate', they said.

Police officers stayed with the group, who were in two coaches and a minibus, giving them blankets and keeping them together until the coaches officers had called for from the region's capital, Pamplona, arrived to take them home.

Until ETA ceased its terrorist activities, the Guardia Civil was one of its sworn enemies and frequent targets for their bloodthirsty attacks.

Officers attending to the ex-prisoners on a cold, snowy night in Navarra somehow managed to put aside the fact that over 200 of their colleagues had perished in ETA bombings since the early 1970s.
