The suspected ETA military chief arrested in France on Thursday, Mikel Karrera Sarobe, is the separatist group's "most senior" leader and the "most wanted" in Spain, the interior minister said.

Another suspect held along with him, Arkaitz Aguirregabiria del Barrio, is the group's number two, Spanish Interior Minister Alfredo Perez Rubalcaba said.

He was also the "most wanted" ETA member in France due to his suspected involvement in the killing of a French police officer in the Paris region in March, the minister told a news conference.
