The Basque militant group ETA says it has "completely dissolved all its structures" after a 60-year armed independence campaign, but the Spanish government vowed Wednesday not to abandon the investigation of crimes from the group's violent past. In a letter sent to Basque institutions and civil society groups, ETA said it acknowledged its responsibility in failing to solve the Basque "political conflict". ETA, whose initials stand for "Euskadi ta Askatasuna" – or "Basque Homeland and Freedom" – killed more than 850 people in its campaign to create an independent Basque state in northern Spain and southern France.ETA also injured more than 2,600 people, kidnapped 86 and threatened hundreds more, according to the latest government count.At least 358 crimes believed to involve ETA are unresolved, according to Covite, an association of victims that is campaigning for ETA to end "without impunity".
