(TAP) - Josu Ternera, an ETA leader accused by Spanish authorities of taking part in a 1987 attack by the Basque separatist group that killed 11 people, has been detained in France, Spain's interior ministry said.

Ternera, also known as Antonio Urrutikoetxea, was held in the Haute Savoie region in a joint Franco-Spanish operation, the ministry said in a statement.

Spain's Supreme Court issued an international arrest warrant against him over the 1987 attack in 2002.
