“They also wanted to kill Luis (del Olmo), he has a guardian angel,” said Herrera. The communicator said that he was always blunt with “terrorism, what surrounds it and those who vote.” C.hen ETA went after him, he was already in the United States. “Someone tells them it’s not that I’m going away for two months, you are a little misinformed about things,” the communicator explained.

Two terrorists entered his office and fired two shots at point blank range. “He was behind me on the list,” he said. Besides, I knew that“Antonio had a gun.” “He taught me (& mldr;) but he didn’t give him time.”
