three Basques Extradicted
British authorities extradited three Basques Tuesday suspected of being members of the Basque armed group ETA, Scotland Yard said. Iñigo Maria Albisu Hernandez, 23, Zigor Ruiz Jaso, 28, and Ana Isabel Lopez Monge, 36, are accused by Spain's top anti-terror judge, Baltasar Garzon, of belonging to the organization. Authorities in Spain issued a European arrest warrant in April 2007, alleging that on March 28, 2006, the three “participated in an attack in Spain where an explosive device caused damage to a naval building”. The warrant claimed the group planned to return to Spain to carry out further attacks.
