MADRID -- French police arrested two suspected ETA members in central France Tuesday, a day after the Basque terrorist group killed a Spanish army officer in one of three car bombings in the Basque Country and Cantabria during the weekend.

Authorities identified the two suspects as Unai Fano and María Lizarraga Merino, both thought to be part of ETA's logistics division. They had guns, false identity documents and cash when they were stopped near the town of Prelion in France's Loire region.

Neither is considered directly connected with the 21 September bombings, one of which killed Luis Conde, a 46-year-old non-commissioned officer. Conde's funeral was held hours after the arrests, at his military base in Segovia.
