Two Basque separatist leaders arrested in southern France

“Two political leaders of the Basque separatist group ETA were arrested in France on Tuesday after ten years on the run in what Spain’s interior minister hailed as the group’s ‘decapitation’. David Pla, 40, and a woman, Iratxe Sorzabal, 43, were seized in the Pyrenees village of Saint-Etienne-de-Baigorry in southwest France, one of ETA’s strongholds. The joint operation between French and Spanish police ‘completes the decapitation of ETA’, Spain’s interior minister Jorge Fernandez Diaz told reporters as he arrived for a meeting in Brussels.”
