There's a story breaking right now in Madrid. TV3, Catalan TV, is reporting that three ETA terrorists shot it out with two members of the Guardia Civil on the N-VI, the Coruña highway northwest of the center city. This happened just minutes ago. One of the police officers was killed and the other wounded. Of the terrorists, one surrendered, one was wounded and captured, and the third stole a car at gunpoint and fled. He is still at large. The unwounded terrorist has been identified by the cops; he is a member of ETA's juvenile arm who graduated to become an infrastructure member several years ago. The roads leading into Madrid, at least those from the north, have been blocked off. When I hear more I'll post it.
