Two Basque separatists thought to be members of the armed group ETA have been arrested in Mexico.

Juan Jesus Narvaez Goñi and Itziar Alberdi Uranga are believed to be part of a terrorist cell that killed 18 people around the time of the 1992 Summer Olympic Games, which were held in Barcelona.

The two have been on the run for over 22 years.

ETA is believed to have been responsible for hundreds of deaths since taking up arms in the late 1960s to fight for an independent Basque region. The group agreed to a ceasefire in 2011.
