    Background: Tens of thousands of demonstrators marched through the centre of Paris on Thursday (10 December) in support of the 16 Basque Nationalists on trial in Burgos, Spain, accused of terrorism.

    As the demonstration went on, five military judges in Burgos were considering their verdicts, which are expected by the weekend. The verdicts could decide the fate of the kidnapped West German consul Eugen Beihl, held hostage by members of the Basque extremist organisation E.T.A.

    The paris demonstration became violent at times, as chanting youths ignored dispersal calls by the organisers and clashed with riot police.

    The demonstration was organised by French trade unions and left-wing group, including the Communist party.
