Description

At around 11 pm, Vicente Montoya was about to start his car to drive to work. The car was parked close to his home in the La Paz district of Baracaldo. When he switched on the ignition, the limpet bomb attached to the underside of the car exploded. He lost both his legs and suffered burns to much of his body and severe head injuries. He died a few days later. His wife, who was leaning over the balcony at the time, was also injured.
