Description

Juan Ramón Joya and his colleague Francisco Vázquez Bolaños were in civilian clothes, driving along Paseo de Velate in Francisco’s car. When they stopped at a red light near Plaza de Gorriti, they were machine-gunned by members of ETA from another vehicle. The car was hit by around twenty bullets, mostly in the front and side. Despite the fact that there were many people on the street at the time of the attack, none wanted to give a statement to police.
