Description

The attack took place near the policeman’s home. Montxo was on his way home to pick up his wife and young son to take the child to a crèche. He had driven just 50 metres in his Opel Vectra when the bomb exploded. Another driver behind him had noticed something suspicious protruding from under the driver’s seat and had begun to sound his horn and flash his lights to get the police officer’s attention. The victim either did not notice or did not have time to react. Moments later, the bomb exploded, killing him.
