Spain arrests supporters of separatist ETA

Basque organisation under renewed pressure to disband following arrest of most of its leaders.

    Lawyers and supporters linked to the Basque separatist organisation ETA have been arrested in Spain.

    The organisation is under renewed pressure to disband and a planned demonstration on Saturday in support of ETA prisoners has also been banned.

    Instead, an alternative rally in favour of human rights and peace will be held.
