Spanish Civil War bodies exhumed

Published on June 14th, 2009 | by Admin


Seven bodies have been removed from Spanish Civil War graves for official identification.

Archaeologists recovered the remains, belonging to men executed by supporters of Gen Francisco Franco in 1936.

This could be the first of thousands of official exhumations that have been the focus of a lengthy legal wrangle.

The matter of exhumations is still controversial in Spain 70 years after the Civil War.
