Bordeaux - French police arrested Saturday three suspected members of the outlawed Basque separatist group ETA near the southern city of Pau close to the Spanish border.

The two men and one women, all carrying a firearm, were picked up on a public road in the Pau suburb of Idron, police said, without giving the identities of the suspects.

ETA, considered a terrorist organisation by the European Union and the United States, is blamed for the deaths of 825 people in its 40-year campaign to carve a Basque homeland out of northern Spain and southwestern France.
