3 ETA suspects charged in March killing of French police officer outside Paris

PARIS — Preliminary charges have been filed against three suspected members of the Spanish Basque separatist movement ETA in the March 16 killing of a police officer outside Paris.

Interior Minister Brice Hortefeux vowed Friday that France, along with Spain, would hunt down “one by one these terrorists in their hideouts.”

A judicial official said charges of aggravated homicide, attempted homicide and association with a terrorist enterprise were filed Thursday against the three, identified as Mikel Kabikoitz Carrera Sarobe, Arkaitz Agirregabiria — arrested June 20 in Bayonne, in the southwest — and Iosu Urbieta Acorta — arrested in central France.

The officer died in a gunfight after police chased a group following a theft in Dammarie-les-Lys.
