Description

On the morning of 28 August, Jesús María Echeveste left his home on Calle Fueros, where he lived with his wife, Milagros, and crossed to the newsagents on the opposite side of the street, where he bought a newspaper and a packet of cigarettes. He then walked down Calle Berrotarán, reading his paper. When he reached the Weekend bar, a terrorist stopped out in front of him and shot him twice with a sawn-off shotgun. Jesús María fell face down on the rear of a car parked on the street and then slipped to the ground.
