Rights groups slam Franco-Spanish ETA raid

French police officers control a vehicle following a French and Spanish police operation against the Basque separatist group ETA near Bayonne, on December 16, 2016Five people were arrested and arms seized in a police raid which France and Spain claimed dealt a “blow” to Spanish Basque separatists ETA, but which rights groups slammed Saturday as a “political” operation. French and Spanish officers staged the raid late Friday near Bayonne in southwest France, and those detained are to be transferred to Paris, where anti-terrorism prosecutors will lead the probe, said sources close to the case. During the operation “a large haul of arms, explosives and ammunition” was seized, said the French interior ministry.
