Description

Ignacio Etxabe ran a guest house. It was there that he was shot and killed by unidentified individuals with a machine-gun. Ignacio was the brother of former ETA-militar leader Juan José Etxabe and his business had already suffered two attacks in the previous months, during waves of attacks by uncontrolled individuals. This was the first killing attributed to far-right terrorists (terrorismo tardofranquista) in Spain, but no group has ever claimed responsibility for the attack.
