In Spain, commemorations have been held in homage to those killed in attacks by the armed Basque separatist group ETA. A ceremony has taken place in San Sebastian, four days after a police officer was killed in a bomb attack outside a police barracks. Among the speakers was the Basque regional president, as well as a man who lost his son in the 1998 Omagh bombing in Northern Ireland. A painting of two people embracing was produced, representing a symbol of peace.

ETA has killed more than 800 people in its fight for independence from northern Spain and southwestern France. The group has killed six people since breaking off a ceasefire in December 2006.
