Mexico probes suspected chemical arms ETA link

MEXICO CITY, July 20 (Reuters) - Information on how to make chemical weapons and other materials related to possible political violence were found in a Mexican safe house used by Spaniards and Mexicans suspected of links to the guerrilla group ETA, officials said.

Ten people were arrested in Mexico and Spain on Friday in a crackdown on the financial and logistic structure of the Basque separatists.

Six Spaniards and three Mexicans were detained in cities across Mexico and were being held on Sunday awaiting extradition proceedings. One Spaniard was arrested in northern Spain, Spanish Interior Minister Angel Acebes said on Saturday.

At a house in the Pacific Coast resort of Puerto Escondido, a search turned up manuals on how to make chemical weapons and on ETA operations, as well as 25 videos of ETA activities, bank statements and other evidence, Mexico's Attorney General's Office, or PGR, said in a news release.
