Juan Carlos: Basque arrested over Spain 'murder plot'

A Spanish man has been arrested in the UK in connection with the attempted assassination of the king of Spain.

Eneko Gogeaskoetxea Arronategui - believed to be a member of the Basque separatist group Eta - was captured by police in Cambridge.

The 44-year-old was later remanded in custody following an extradition hearing held before City of Westminster magistrates.

Spain believes he fled after trying to kill King Juan Carlos in October 1997.
