Spain Nabs 2 Suspected Basque Militants

Police arrested at least two suspected Basque separatists Tuesday in the northern Navarra region, the government said. News reports linked them to a bombing attempt during the annual San Fermin Festival in Pamplona. The national news agency Efe quoted police as saying the suspects may have been behind a bomb scare Sunday in which nine pounds of explosives were placed in a Pamplona hotel as the city hosted the annual running of the bulls. A caller who identified himself as a member of the armed Basque separatist group ETA told police about the device and it was defused.
