Description

At eleven o’clock in the morning, five National Police officers, including the victim, went to the Susperregui Inn, in the Franchilla farmhouse to get some rolls for their lunch, without realising that they were under surveillance by a terrorist unit. Three of the officers had arrived in uniform in a Z car with police markings, while the other two were in plain clothes and were travelling in an unmarked navy blue Seat 131 Supermirafiori. 800 metres from the restaurant, terrorists opened fire on the two cars with automatic weapons from several different angles. Because of the rough terrain, the cars were travelling at low speed, making them an easy target. The officers returned fire, but failed to hit any of the terrorists. Two of the officers, Jesús Ordóñez Pérez and Juan Seronero Sacristán, were riddled with bullets and died instantly. The other two, Alfonso López Fernández and Antonio Cedillo Toscano, were seriously wounded and died a few hours later.
