PARIS – Spanish anti-terrorist squad officers were Thursday interrogating two suspected ETA members arrested in western France.
The suspects were arrested in the small city of Saintes, near Bourdeaux late Wednesday.
Julen Eizaguirre Urangade, 38, and his girlfriend Angela Aramendi Landa, 34, were arrested by French police after a chase.
The pair who were travelling with their son, abandoned their car and fled through a wood.
They were soon detained by police. The child has been taken into care.
The two suspects are thought to be part of the group's logistical branch.
They had been driving a car with false number plates.
Inside the car, police found two pistols, false identity documents, a driving licence and papers with the ETA logo.
The couple allegedly identified themselves as members of ETA and refused to talk in French or Spanish.
They were both transferred to Paris where they were interrogating by specialist anti-terrorist police.
They are wanted for a number of terrorist attacks carried out in Spain by ETA.
Police sources said they were thought to have been living in Mexico, but moved back to France to take part in ETA operations.
