Description

During the middle of the morning, members of the National Police’s reserve company, based in Basauri, had set up a checkpoint to on the road running next to the river estuary between Bilbao, Erandio and Las Arenas. During this time, two members of the unit, Corporal Miguel Ángel Saro Pérez and Officer Emilo López de la Peña, went to a tobacconist about two hundred metres away. As they were leaving the shop, two or three members of ETA fired on them from a car they had previously stolen at gunpoint. They were both killed.
