On this day, in 1978, three Armenian gunmen open automatic gunfire on the automobile of the Turkish Ambassador to Spain, Zeki Kuneralp. The Ambassador's wife, Necla Kuneralp, and a guest, a retired Turkish Ambassador, Beşir Balcıoğlu, are killed. Spanish chauffeur, Antonio Torres, dies later from his wounds. Armenian Secret Army for the Liberation of Armenia (ASALA) and Justice Commandos against Armenian Genocide (JCAG) claim responsibility.

TurkishPAC strongly condemns Armenian terrorist acts.
