“Most-wanted” fugitives were captured Wednesday and believed to be members of the Basque-region separatist group ETA.  The United States and European Union consider the ETA as a terrorist network.  

Located at an Alpine Ski Resort In southeast France, Aitzol Etxaburu and Andoni Sarasola were detained by the Spanish and French police.  The arrests led police to more than 220 pounds (100 kg) of explosives.  The ETA claimed ownership of a series of bombings in June and July — killing two Civil Guard officers and a police offer, dozens were wounded across Spain. 

No more ski vacations for Aitzol Etxaburu and Andoni Sarasola.
