TWO fugitives from the Basque terrorist cell ETA have been arrested in London, according to the Metropolitan Police.

Antonio Troitiño and Ignacio Lerín were lying low in the English capital with arrest warrants over their heads, and were said to have been behind some of the highest numbers of murders in the 1980s.

Troitiño, 55, a member of the extremely bloodthirsty Madrid commando was arrested in January 1987 along with five other ETA members, two of whom were women, following a blast in the capital which killed 22 people.

He was serving an exemplary 2,500-year sentence in Gran Canaria for the deaths of 12 Guardia Civil officers in the capital in 1986, and between him and his brother Domingo, they have racked up a total of 43 killings during their time as ETA terrorists.

Troitiño was released in 2011, six years earlier than planned, but went on the run, meaning he is now back behind bars.
