One of most wanted ETA separatists held in France

One of the most wanted members of the armed Basque separatist group ETA was arrested Monday in southwestern France, officials said. Sabin Mendizabal Plazaola, 34, who had been on the run for six years, was held in Saint-Palais in the foothills of the Pyrenees on an international arrest warrant for allegedly injuring a Spanish police officer who had been chasing him, Madrid said. Its interior ministry said he was “on the most wanted list of ETA members” for giving support to one of the group’s most active units, “commando Donosti”, which operated in the San Sebastian region. He disappeared in 2009 after a Spanish court sentenced him to prison for throwing an explosive device at the headquarters of Spain’s ruling Popular Party in the Basque town of Ermua.
