Description

María Teresa Torrano Francia was 37 when she was seriously injured in a petrol bomb attack on the headquarters of the Socialist Party (Casa del Pueblo) in Portugalete by terrorists from Mendeku. She died three days later on 28 April 1987 from her burns. Her husband, Jesús Ramos, who was the secretary of the Portugalete socialist group, was injured in the attack. They had two children aged 13 and 11. María Teresa had been an active member of the socialist party since 1977 and on occasions had taken part as a monitor in the summer camps organized by the PSE-PSOE.

Eyewitnesses spoke of horrific scenes, as people ran out of the building engulfed in flames.
