Spain, formally the Kingdom of Spain, is a country in Southwestern Europe with some pockets of territory in the Mediterranean Sea, offshore in the Atlantic Ocean and across the Strait of Gibraltar.

Madrid is both the Capital and the largest city. Other major urban areas include Barcelona, Valencia, Seville, Zaragoza, Málaga, Murcia, Palma de Mallorca, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and Bilbao.

Spain has sent 86 rescuers and eight search dogs to Morocco to “help in the search and rescue of survivors of the devastating earthquake suffered in our neighbouring country”, said a defence ministry statement. The Spanish were the first to send in emergency personnel. FRANCE 24’s correspondent in Madrid Sarah Morris tells us more about the Spanish aid to Morocco.

The incident happened in Magaluf

The two suspects police in Spain were hunting over the alleged gang rape of an 18-year-old British tourist in Magaluf have been arrested in France.
