Description

A number of ETA members went in a stolen car to the hypermarket in Oyárzun, owned by French group Pryca, where they planted a bomb. Shortly before 8.00 pm, anonymous warning calls were made to the management of the shopping centre and a motor assistance association. The bomb did not explode at 8.30 pm, the time given in the calls. The civil guards who had gone to the scene continued to search amongst the bags and packages left by customers in the left luggage area. Ten minutes later, José Antonio Peña was inspecting a bag when it exploded, killing him instantly.
