Spanish PM hosts UN Secretary General

Spanish prime minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero, just hours after the announcement that Basque separatist group ETA is to end its ceasefire, has welcomed UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon to the Spanish capital, Madrid.
ETA’s decision to officially call an end to the truce follows a December bomb attack at Madrid airport that killed two people.
The announcement has dealt a blow to Zapatero’s attempt to negotiate an end to four decades of armed struggle for the Basque country’s independence.
