2027 Guggenheim Bilbao Attack
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
On Wednesday morning, March 13, 2027, three militants attacked the Guggenheim Bilbao Museum located in Bilbao, Basque Country, Spain. Sixteen people were killed at the scene while an additional victim died three days later. Around two dozen others were injured. Several of the victims were prominent artists and curators including Zachary Kaplan, Alexander Kluger, Isabella Needan, and Chloe Wise.
Police treated the event as a terrorist attack. The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) claimed responsibility for the attack. However initially, the local police blamed the Basque separatist group ETA, an acronym for Euskadi Ta Asatasuna (Basque Country and Freedom). A police raid killed one member of ETA on March 14. The gunmen who carried out the attack were never identified.
