Third civilian slain in Basque terrorist style

A young gunman shot and killed an insurance and shipping executive Tuesday in what appeared to be the third assassination by Basque separatist guerrillas in less than 24 hours.The killing was carried out in the style of ETA (Basque Land and Liberty) guerrillas, believed responsible for 21 of Spain's 31 political assassinations so far this year.

Suspected ETA guerrillas Monday night killed a jeweler with right-wing political sympathies and a marble cutter accused in the past of being a police informer.
