The remains of Spanish dictator General Francisco Franco are presently kept in a mausoleum, along with the remains of some of his former enemies. Their relatives find this outrageous.
Spain is now one step closer to removing Francisco Franco from a mausoleum that also holds some of his victims. The government hopes that this will bring some closure to a country still reckoning with its past.
Groups idolizing Spanish dictator Franco will become illegal under plans presented by the new socialist government of Pedro Sanchez. Madrid also plans to fund the exhumation of mass graves from the Spanish Civil War.
Police in Spain have arrested a man who wanted to kill the country's prime minister. The 63-year-old man behind the plan had allegedly amassed an arsenal of weapons, including sniper rifles and a submachine gun.
Spain's government has called for Francisco Franco's body to be removed from a mausoleum in the Valley of the Fallen. Franco's family and far-right supports oppose the move and have rushed to visit the dictator's tomb.
