The Basque regional paper El Correo is the most widely read daily in northern Spain. During Franco's dictatorship the paper was seen as the flagship of the fascist movement and was the target of several attacks by the Basque terrorist organisation ETA. In 1977, shortly before the country's first democratic election, members of the underground organisation assasinated the paper's publisher at the time, Javier de Ybarra y Bergé.
