General Charged With Murder, Torture

A judge charged a Civil Guard general on Monday with murder, kidnapping and torture in connection with the government’s alleged covert war against Basque separatists.

Gen. Enrique Rodriguez Galindo was accused of orchestrating the deaths of two Basque separatists in 1983, according to press reports.

A former interior minister and former head of state security also face charges of participating in the secret war, waged under the name of the Anti-terrorist Liberation Groups, which targeted Basque separatists in their haven in France in the 1980s.
