Description

Rafaél Garrido left the headquarters of the Military Government in San Sebastian in his official car. He was accompanied by his wife, a son and a private, who was driving. At a red light at the junction between the Boulevard and Calle Legazpi, two ETA members who were following on a large motorcycle pulled up beside the official car. One of them attached an explosive device to the roof of the vehicle. The bomb exploded a few seconds later. Rafaél was killed, as were his wife and son. The driver suffered traumatic shock, bruising, cuts and second-degree burns. A Portuguese citizen who was walking past at the time, Maria Jose Teixeira (27), was injured in the blast and died 17 days later.
