Phew, it's over... It is now forbidden to kill an inhabitant of the Basque Country in Iceland.
This was still possible until April 22nd, 2015, since 1615.
Indeed, a local decree authorized the killing of Basques in the region of the Western Fjords, in the northwest of the island.
The justification for this was that Basque whalers came to Iceland to hunt whales, although this was forbidden to local sailors.
In 1615, taking advantage of the sinking of a Basque ship on the Icelandic coast, an Icelandic official ordered the massacre of 32 Basque whalers.
Today, the Basque Country no longer has any whalers, but Iceland authorizes the hunting of cetaceans, much to the displeasure of environmentalists and the EU.
