Big Eta arms

dump discovered

French police have discovered two, large hidden reserves of arms, which are thought to belong to the Basque separatists Eta. The caches, recently uncovered in south-western France, included dynamite, rocket launchers, guns, assault weapons, ammunition and fake documents. The discovery happened after alleged Eta leaders were arrested in raids in France and Spain. In all, 11 people, including suspected Eta leader, Mikel Albizu, have been indicted by a Paris judge and Spanish authorities consider the discovery of arms and the arrests made to be possibly the most significant blow against Eta in years.
