ETA military chief arrested in France

On Tuesday joint forces of French police and Spanish Civil Guard arrested Mikel Karrera Sarobe, suspected military chief of the Basque terrorist group Euskadi Ta Askatasuna (ETA).

Mikel Sarobe aka  “Ata” along with three other members of the gang was arrested in Bayonne in France at about 6:15 a.m. Another one ETA member was arrested in Urrugne.

Sarobe is allegedly responsible for orchestration of a violent attack which resulted in death of one French policeman in Seine-et-Marne in France this year. Sarobe became a leader of ETA after its former leader Ibon Gogeascoechea was arrested on February 2010 in France.
