    Background: Spanish riot police and Basque separatists clashed on Sunday (11 April) when security forces moved in to prevent banned marches to mark Basque National Day, traditionally held on Easter Sunday. Rallies staged by political moderates were allowed, but demonstrations organised by radical groups were banned by the authorities. The festival was celebrated for the first time as the official national day of the two-year-old autonomous Basque country. It had been forbidden under the 40-year dictatorship of the late General Franco. In San Sebastian, near Bilbao, riot police scuffled with Basque separatist supporters and used rubber bullets and armoured vehicles to disperse them when the demonstrators built barricades in the streets. Other demonstrations were held in Pamplona, the capital of the disputed province of Navarre, Estella, Mondargon and Santurce.
