Suspect ETA military chief held in France: Report
French police on Thursday arrested the suspected military chief of ETA.
Bordeaux: French police on Thursday arrested the suspected military chief of the Basque separatist group ETA, Mikel Karrera Sarobe, sources close to the investigation said.
Two other suspected ETA members -- also Spanish nationals -- were arrested with Karrera Sarobe when detectives and anti-terrorist police raided a house in the southwestern French city of Bayonne at daybreak, the sources said.
Cooperation between Madrid and Paris has led to the arrests in the past two years of five top ETA leaders in France, which the group has long used as a rear base from which to stage attacks in Spain.
