MADRID-Spanish police found an arms cache belonging to the Basque terrorist group ETA that contained enough explosives to make at least six powerful bombs.

Investigators told EFE that the cache was in the town of Cabaña, in the northern province of Burgos.

The explosives found by police were similar to those used by ETA in recent attacks in Spain.

The cache was found as part of a police operation that netted three suspected ETA members last week.

Police arrested Iker Olabarrieta Colorado, Igor Gonzalez Sola and Carmelo Laucirica Orive last Friday in the Basque city of San Sebastian.

The three suspects were members of a key terrorist cell, according to officials.

ETA, which stands for Basque Homeland and Freedom, has killed more than 830 people since 1968 in its campaign to create an independent Basque state in parts of northern Spain and south-western France.
