Terror Suspect Arrested In Cambridge

A man has been arrested in Cambridge in connection with an assassination attempt on the King of Spain.

Eneko Gogeaskoetxea Arronategui was arrested during a raid on Fortescue Road just before 9am today.

A European arrest warrant was issued for the Spanish national over an attempted assassination in 1997.

Officers from Cambridgeshire Police and Scotland Yard raided the property following an "intelligence-led" operation.

Arronategui, who is 44, is believed to be a member of the Basque separatist group Eta and will appear before magistrates for an extradition hearing.

Spanish authorities believe he attempted to assassinate King Juan Carlos in October 1997 before fleeing the country.
