Facing terror charges, ETA's last boss apologizes for deaths
Josu Urrutikoetxea, a former leader of Basque separatist militant group ETA, speaks in Paris, Thursday, Oct. 15, 2020. Just because he oversaw ETA’s end in 2018, they stress, that doesn’t erase his past. Survivors of violent attacks and relatives of ETA’s victims say the campaign humiliates them. ETA’s cause was politically and socially divisive inside Spain’s Basque society and widely rejected across the rest of Spain. What I do want is to see him taking the stand in court,” she said, standing at the site of ETA's attack on the Civil Guard.
Jean Kennedy Smith, last surviving sibling of JFK, dies
NEW YORK Jean Kennedy Smith, the last surviving sibling of President John F. Kennedy and a former ambassador to Ireland, died Wednesday, her daughter confirmed to The New York Times. Smith died at her home in Manhattan, her daughter Kym told the Times. Sen. Edward Kennedy, the youngest of the Kennedy siblings, died of brain cancer in August 2009, the same month their sister Eunice Kennedy Shriver died. Smith, who married Kennedy family financial adviser and future White House chief of staff Stephen Edward Smith in 1956, was viewed for much of her life as a quiet sister who shunned the spotlight. Her son, Dr. William Kennedy Smith, made headlines in 1991, when he was charged with rape at the Kennedy estate in Palm Beach, Florida.
