Breaking news: ETA has committed murder again. A gunman shot Miguel Isaias Carrasco, 42, three times in the back of the head at 1:30 this afternoon outside his house in Mondragón, Guipúzcoa province. When he was shot he was accompanied by his wife and daughter. Carrasco had been a Socialist city council member in the town of Arrasate.

Our sympathies and condolences to his family and friends.

ETA must be destroyed. No negotiations with terrorists.

The murder will affect the electoral campaign: Zapatero will be hurt, as his government held secret negotiations with ETA during their so-called truce. The PP will benefit, as it has a much stronger tough-on-ETA record and discourse.

It's a terrible shame that terrorism will affect the result of the election, as it did in 2004.
