Security forces in France on Saturday arrested the suspected military chief of ETA, the third top leader of the Basque separatist organisation to be captured in the last six months, Spanish national radio said.

Jurdan Martitegi was detained along with two other ETA suspects in the vicinity of the southern French city of Perpignan in an operation carried out in cooperation with Spanish security forces, the radio said, quoting anti-terrorist sources.
However, one thing is not "good:" When will English-language media stop calling ETA a "separatist organization"? It's a terrorist organization, for chrissakes. It's not what they pursue -- separatism --, which is legitimate. It's the methods they use to reach that goal -- terrorism -- what makes them criminals.
