Description

On 15 May 1980, a few minutes before 9.30 am, ETA shot and killed three national police officers as they were having coffee in a bar in in San Sebastian; they were José Manuel Rodríguez Fontana, Dionisio Villadangos Calvo and Jesús Holgado Sabio. José Manuel was killed instantly; Dionisio died a few minutes after being admitted to a health centre; and Jesús Holgado Sabio died of blood loss a few hours after the attack. The three officers had just come off all-night guard duty at the police section of the National Identity Document office and were still in uniform. Thirty-eight years after the attack, the identity of the assassins is still a mystery. The three officers were all aged under 30 and single, although José Manuel Rodríguez Fontana was due to be married that August.
