Description

Daniela Velasco left the headquarters of the Military Government of San Sebastian in her husband’s official car. She was travelling with her husband, her son and a private who was driving. The vehicle stopped at a red traffic light at the junction of Avenida del Boulevard and Calle Legazpi. Two ETA members on a large motorcycle pulled up beside the car and one of them, José Miguel Latasa, attached an explosive device to the roof of the vehicle. The device exploded a few seconds later, killing three of the four occupants: Daniela, her husband and her son. The driver suffered traumatic shock, bruising, cuts and second-degree burns. A Portuguese citizen who was walking past at the time, Maria Jose Teixeira (27), was injured in the blast and died 17 days later.
