Arms dumps include 118 guns, nearly 3,000kg of explosive materials and more than 25,000 rounds of ammunition
Basque separatist group Eta has said it is giving up 118 pistols, rifles and automatic weapons, 25,700 rounds of ammunition and 2,875 kilograms of explosive materials to French authorities, as one of Europes few home-grown listed terrorist groups finally disarms.
The nature and content of the arms dumps were revealed in a set of documents seen exclusively by the Guardian.
Eta gives the contents of eight arms dumps in the documents, which are written in Spanish, French and the Basque language of Euskara. The Guardian has not been told where they are and was unable to calculate the totals itself but it is assumed that all or most are on French soil.
The documents carry the blue ink stamp of Eta an acronym for Basque Homeland and Freedom.
The Guardian is unable to vouch for exactly what other materials, which included detonators and other devices, the caches might contain.
