Police in southern France have uncovered two further weapons caches believed to be used by the Basque separatist group, ETA.

Almost 200kg of explosives were found at one location, together with guns and detonators.

Almost a tonne of explosives have been seized in raids over the past week.

The BBC reports French authorities have been working closely with their Spanish counterparts following renewed bomb attacks last month blamed on ETA.
