Spanish general killed in attack outside his home

The former head of the Madrid military region, Lt. Gen. Guillermo Quintana Lacaci, was shot dead outside his home Sunday by unidentified gunmen, police say. Quintana, the sixth Army general killed in Spain since 1978, was gunned down from a passing car in a fashionable residential area after attending church.

No group immediately claimed responsibility for the killing but suspicion fell on the Basque separatist organization ETA, which has carried out dozens of murders in recent years in its fight for an independent state.
