The ministry said Izaskun Lesaka and another suspected member of the violent armed band were arrested in a hotel in Macon. The suspects had been tracked by a special operations tactical unit of the French National Police and were both armed at the time of their arrest.
ETA is considered a terrorist organisation by Spain, the US and the European Union and is blamed for the killings of more than 825 people in a violent campaign of bombings and shootings for an independent Basque state straddling the border with France.
