French police transferred the presumed military chief of the Basque separatist group ETA and four other suspected militants to a prison in Paris on Saturday, a source close to the case said.

Mikel Karrera Sarobe, 37, described by Spain's interior minister as "the most senior leader" and military chief of ETA, was flown to Paris from Bayonne in southwestern France, where he had been held since his arrest in the city on Thursday.

His presumed deputy, Arkaitz Aguirregabiria del Barrio and three other suspected ETA members were also on the flight to Paris.

The five detainees will appear before anti-terrorist prosecutors either on Sunday or Monday.
