Euskadi - molotov attack against estate agent
July 16, 2010 - An assault committed with the launch of Molotov cocktails during the night caused significant damage at a property of Hendaye on the French Basque country, French police said.
The attack is attributed to groups operating under the slogan "Euskal Herria ez da salgai" (Euskal Herria is not for sale.)
The attack was carried out by a group of individuals around one last night. Militants first attacked real estate offices Maitena, located at 12 Avenue of the Malls, in the centre of town.
The devices caused a serious fire that forced families who occupied the upper floors of the building to leave.
Almost simultaneously, attackers torched a car in the estate, which was parked a few metres from the premises and was identified by a sticker of the company. The flames destroyed the vehicle and also struck a second car parked nearby.
Damage caused in the attack were very great, both in the offices and the car, which was destroyed.
Police have launched an investigation and taken statements from locals who may have witnessed the presence of the group of attackers.
The sources stressed that the attack was committed by a procedure identical to that used by ETA environment in the Spanish Basque Country. Maitena estate agency, established in 1985, is dedicated to the sale and rental of houses and apartments in the border town.
