Four ETA suspects detained in France were being taken to Paris for questioning today. It follows a search of the house they were renting. It has been described by police as a “bomb factory.” Spain’s government believes the three men and a woman played a decisive role in a deadly attack at Madrid Airport last December. It is alleged that one of them, Luis Ignacio Iruretagoyena, is the armed Basque separatist group’s leading explosives expert.
Police say bomb-making equipment was found in the house in Cahors in south-western France. Investigations are underway into whether a training video on how to produce explosives, which has been in police hands since May, was recorded on the premises.
