Portuguese police seized a large amount of explosives Friday at a home being used by Basque separatist group ETA as a base to prepare attacks in neighboring Spain, officials said.

About 500 kilograms (1,100 pounds) of explosives were found inside a garage at the house, bomb squad commander Helder Barros said at a news conference. A considerable amount of bomb-making equipment was also found, he said.

The discovery was made after two occupants of a stolen van containing material, including detonators, had fled from a police control near the central town of Obidos, police spokesman Nelson dos Santos said.
