  • Description

    Top military officials attended the funeral in Barcelona on Thursday (9 October) of five victims of a gun battle in the Spanish city the previous day.

    The dead were two policemen, killed by their own sentries, and three civilians who were passing a police barracks when the shoot out took place.

    This brings to 19 the number of police killed in Spain this year, eight of them in the last week.

    And on Thursday another Spanish policeman died after being wounded in a guerrilla attack last week. His death was the tenth since the controversial execution of five urban guerrillas on 27 September.

    The outbreak of political violence has added further tension to the social and political situation in Spain. Rumours run rife about military takeovers, major Government changes and further police killings.
