Seven members of ETA cell arrested in Spain
Seven people accused of being members of an ETA separatist guerrilla unit that carried out recent deadly attacks in Spain were arrested in the early hours of Tuesday in Spain's Basque country, media reported.

Among those arrested was Arkaitz Goikoetxea, the alleged leader of the "Vizcaya cell" blamed for the killing of several police officers since the Basque armed guerrillas called off a ceasefire in June, Spanish media reported.

Spain's Interior Ministry declined to confirm the reports.
