We urge the Spanish authorities once again to put in place all the necessary measures to protect journalists and allow them to work normally,” it said.The editorial of El Mundo said an unnamed journalist working in the Basque Country received a letter from ETA in the week of 15 October telling him that his name had been entered in the separatist group’s internal bulletin. ETA said in the letter that the journalist’s work was “not good” and accused him of being a “police officer” and an “informer”.”You use the word terrorist to refer to ETA and its members. You encourage police operations and you are in favour of a police solution to the conflict,” said the letter. You express your joy when ETA members are tortured or kidnapped. You stir up people against the Basque National Liberation Movement (MLNV).”Reporters Without Borders pointed out that Spain is the only country in the European Union in which journalists, when targeted by ETA, have to move around permanently with bodyguards.

Syracuse travels to No. 8 Louisville (8-1-2, 3-0-1) for its third game against a Top-10 team in two weeks.The Cardinals beat Belmont, 6-0, on Tuesday and rank first in the ACC Atlantic Division.
