Description

At around 10.45 pm on 1 March 1990, two ETA members were waiting for retired navy lieutenant Aureliano Rodríguez Arenas close to his home in the Bidebieta district of San Sebastian. They fired on him, hitting him several times, once in the head, and made off. The lieutenant was very seriously injured in the attack. He underwent surgery that night and spent four days in a coma. He passed away on 5 March. Aureliano Rodríguez Arenas was 65 years old and had retired just five months before. Originally from Cordoba, he had been living in San Sebastian for thirty years. He was married and had three children.
