Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

As migeru points out... two presidential elections affected by a terrorist attack.. no matter who wins...

Great... it is so great I want to vomit.

We're sure it's ETA this time?

A formal declaration has not been issued.. but killing one ex-politican is tpical standard procedure... just as it is Al-Qaeda procedure to target mass transit.

As soon is formally announced we will update.

Unless it's a false flag operation...

The MO clearly points to ETA: he was shot in the head at the entrance to his home. He was shot in front of his wife and child, something ETA did already once in Sevilla (they killed a local councillor and his wife in front of both of their young children).

Just want to say that Italy (including me!) is deeply solidaristic with Spain in the face of this tragic horror... we feel particularly close to you at this time. Huge top headlines in all our papers and on TV with practically no electoral-effects speculation, emphasis here is all about Spain as a nation shocked and suffering but firmly united ... wishing you well.
