10 More ETA Suspects Arrested

Spanish police arrested 10 suspected collaborators of the Basque separatist group ETA on Thursday, raising to 33 the number of ETA suspects who have been detained this week, the Interior Ministry said. The latest phase of the crackdown involved the pre-dawn arrests of nine men and a woman who run the business and editorial operations of a pro-independence newspaper published in the Basque language. The name of the newspaper, Euskaldunon Egunkaria, translates as “The newspaper for those who speak Basque.” It publishes ETA’s periodic statements claiming responsibility for fatal attacks. The Interior Ministry said the newspaper and its management have clear links to ETA, which is blamed for more than 800 killings in its 34-year fight for an independent Basque homeland in northern Spain and southwestern France.
