VITORIA (Reuter) - Eta prisoners are to go on hunger strike on Saturday against the government's policy of reintegrating repentant Basque separatists into society. They have accused former comrades who agreed to reintegration of 'collaboration with the enemy'.

'These people have opted for something which benefits themselves but which harms other prisoners, and this we cannot accept,' they said in a letter. There are about 600 Eta prisoners in Spain.
