Basques Deported

MONTEVIDEO, Uruguay () -- Three suspected Basque guerrillas have been flown to Spain after scores of people were injured when angry Uruguayans trying to avert their extradition clashed with police.


Several demonstrators were shot in riots outside a hospital where the three Basques -- Jesus Goitia, Mikel Ibanez and Jesus Lizarralde -- said to be in a critical condition after a 14-day hunger strike, were being treated.


The three were arrested two years ago in Uruguay in connection with killings allegedly carried out by the Basque separatist group ETA.
