PARIS – Two suspected ETA terrorists were surprised while carrying out target practice in France, police said on Tuesday.

The incident took place in a wood in Loir-et-Cher, south of Paris.

Forest rangers heard gunfire and initially thought they were hunters who were breaking local regulations.

But when they found an abandoned car full of ammunition, they realised it was something more sinister. 

In fact it was a stolen car fitted with false number plates.

However, police failed to find the ETA suspects.

They appear to have been practising with automatic pistols.

A security source said it appeared ETA had carried on stealing cars.

In the past year, they had been linked to the theft of 13 vehicles.

In 2006, they stole a record 71 cars.
