San Sebastian - Spanish police combating the armed Basque separatist group ETA have displayed a cache of 1.6 metric tons of bomb-making materiel seized in two raids earlier this week.

Apart from chemical compounds used in making explosives, the exhibit included detonators, a handgun and fuel canisters.

The seizures were made in a series of hideouts in the northern Basque region and adjacent Navarra using information provided by an ETA suspect arrested on Tuesday.

The display was arranged in secure premises within a Civil Guard barracks in the northern seaside city of San Sebastian on Saturday.

ETA declared what it called a permanent cease-fire in January and had said it was open to letting international observers verify the truce.
