  1. France holds 'Eta military head'

    The suspected military chief of the Basque separatist group, Eta, has been arrested in southern France, the French interior minister has announced.
    Michele Alliot-Marie said Garikoitz Aspiazu Rubina, alias "Txeroki", was arrested overnight in the Pyrenees.

    She said he was suspected of the murder of two Spanish civil guard officers in the French town of Capbreton in 2007.
    Eta is blamed for the deaths of more than 820 people in its 40-year campaign for an independent Basque nation.

    Actually, the french and spanish security services work very closely together and on this kind of Op there are always spanish Guardia Civil or policemen operating alongside the french police even though it's on french soil.
