MADRID - Three suspected members of the armed Basque separatist group ETA were arrested Thursday in southwest France, officials said.

The two men and one woman were arrested in the town of Bagneres de Bigorre, the Interior Ministry said. It said they would be identified later in the day.

The joint French-Spanish raid took place two days after ETA called off a 15-month-old cease-fire, blaming the Spanish government for ruining a once-promising peace process.

A French police official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the detainees were believed to belong to ETA's commando network. They were armed at the time of their arrest but put up no resistance, the official said.
