Description

Although one of the leaders of ETA had requested information on Manuel Carrasco Merchán two years earlier from an ETA collaborator in the town, his killing was not planned. Manuel left the bar in the Hogar del Jubilado at 2 pm and was unlucky enough to walk past a house where several ETA members were hiding. Recognising him, they followed him for some distance before shooting him at point-blank range. They then got away in a vehicle in which a third terrorist was waiting.
