'Highest Eta commander' arrested


news.bbc.co.uk

The most senior commander of the Basque separatist movement, Eta, has been arrested in a joint Spanish-French operation, Spanish authorities say.

Javier Lopez Pena - alias "Thierry" - was seized with three other Eta suspects in a late-night raid in the city of Bordeaux, in south-west France.

Eta is blamed for the deaths of more than 820 people in its 40-year campaign for an independent Basque nation.

An arrest of a high commander like this is important in any society. I think the points to note are this was a joint operation with the Spanish and french. Also this has been a campaign that has been going on for forty years. That being the case this campaign is most likely probably not going to end here.
