ETA Leaders arrested

Two leaders of the Basque terrorist organization ETA have been apprehended in a joint French-Spanish raid, according to this CNN report.

This is a major victory against one of the most active terrorist organizations (other than the Islamic extremists based in the Middle East). ETA is especially fond of targeting politicians; only FARC (in Colombia) is more likely to kill a political figure.
