Description

At around 9.20 pm, the terrorist organisation ETA assassinated the head of the local police force in Munguía (Vizcaya), César Pinilla Sanz. The officer had finished work for the day and was heading back to his home in Bermeo, still in uniform. Several ETA members, who had hijacked a car in Guecho at gunpoint, came up from behind and shot him in the back of the neck.
