Description

Fernando left his house on Calle Alava and was walking towards the university area with one of his children and his bodyguard. After leaving his son at the School of Engineering, the politician and his bodyguard walked a few metres further along the pavement. Before they reached the corner of Calle Nieves Cano, a large explosion went off, killing both men. The car bomb, which contained 25 kilograms of explosives and ball bearings, was detonated from several dozen metres away by members of ETA as the socialist politician and his escort walked by.
