An alleged member of the armed Basque separatist group ETA was flown to Spain on Saturday after being extradited from the United States to faces charges in the killing a Spanish army general and two police officers a decade ago.
The accused, Ramon Aldasoro, was accompanied by four FBI agents on the flight from Miami, where he was arrested in 1997. He was immediately ordered to jail by a National Court judge.
Aldasoro, 42, allegedly belonged to an ETA commando blamed for separate bomb attacks in 1988 in which a retired army general, Luis Miguel Azcarraga, and two motorcycle police officers were slain.
He is also alleged to have taken part in a bomb attack on a Civil Guard police barracks the same year.
His arrival in Madrid on Saturday came two weeks after ETA declared an end to a 14-month cease-fire, the longest in its three-decade violent campaign for an independent Basque state. The organization said it planned to resume actions, blaming what it saw as a lack of progress in negotiations to end the conflict.
