Basque separatist group leader arrested in France

MADRID -- French police have arrested a top leader of the Basque separatist group ETA in eastern France, the Spanish interior ministry said in a statement on Sunday.

Izaskun Lesaka, one of “the three main leaders” of the banned organization, was arrested during a raid by an elite French police unit at a hotel in the town of Macon, near the city of Lyon, it said. She was arrested with a man, also described as an ETA member. Both of them were in possession of weapons.

Spain's El Mundo newspaper said Izaskun Lesaka was the head of ETA's military wing.
