  • [01] ETA Military Chief Arrested

    French authorities arrested the suspected military chief of the Basque separatist group ETA, Miguel De Garikoitz Aspiazu Rubina, 35, who goes by the name "Txeroki", dealing the group a major blow. Spanish newspaper "El Paiz" holds him responsible for "shattering hopes of a peace settlement" referring to ETA murders in 2003 which led the Socialist government of Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero to end its controversial dialogue with ETA.

    He is believed to have murdered two Spanish police officers in France on December, 1 said Michele Alliot-Marie, France's Interior Minister. He was arrested with a woman, ETA member, in a Pyrenees town in south-east France on Monday morning. Police found a gun, fake documents and a computer in his apartment. Spain's two largest political parties described his arrest as "excellent news". Spanish police believe Txeroki, a hardliner who is believed to have taken over Eta's military operations in late 2003, has been connected to all the major Eta operations in the last five years. Txeroki's arrest demonstrates the excellent collaboration of French and Spanish security forces in their struggle against terrorism.
