Description

On the morning of 28 May 1983, Civil Guard officers Antonio Conejo Salguero and Fidel Lázaro Aparicio were on guard duty at the post office on Paseo de Sarasate, in the centre of Pamplona. At 11.05 am, two terrorists, described by witnesses as “well-dressed”, approached within a few metres of a officers before producing guns and shooting them at point-blank range. They then escaped on foot to a nearby vehicle where another terrorist was waiting. Antonio Conejo, who had begun his new posting that day, was shot six times; he was dead on arrival at the Navarra Hospital. Fidel Lázaro died shortly afterwards at the University Clinic. Doctors found that he had received six bullet wounds. The Autonomous Anti-Capitalist Units, a splinter group of ETA, claimed responsibility for the double killing.
